This updated reprint provides up-to-date information on refractories technology presented by recognized experts in the field. Produced from focused sessions of two Refractory Ceramics Division meetings, refractory scientists from around the world were invited to provide overviews of the scientific principles related to refractory manufacturing and performance. The result is this informative volume and a current view of the Fundamentals of Refractory Technology.
