Summary

Subject consists of two parts : Ironmaking and steelmaking. The first part of subject is read with the purpose to outline basic contextures and structure of metallurgical aggregates in sphere of metallurgical basic industry. The second part of subject contains steelmaking slags, oxidising processes, production in steelmaking aggregates, charge materials, secondary metallurgy of steel, steel casting.
