Introduction to Engineering Materials pp Cite as. Although there are very many metallic elements, it is customary to divide metals and alloys into two major categories, ferrous and non-ferrous.

The former category covers the element iron and its alloys, while all the other metallic elements some 70 in number and their alloys are classified as non-ferrous. The division is not quite as unbalanced as might at first appear, because iron occupies a very special position among metallic materials, owing to its availability, its comparatively low cost, and the very useful ranges of alloys that are formed when iron is alloyed with carbon and other elements.

Some 94 per cent of the total world consumption of metallic materials is in the form of steels and cast irons. On the other hand, out of all the non-ferrous metals, only a few, aluminium, copper, lead, magnesium, nickel, tin, titanium and zinc, are produced in moderately large quanties. Many of the other metallic elements play an important part in engineering, both as alloying elements and as metals in their own right.

The role of some of these, including beryllium, cobalt, molybdenum and tungsten, as alloying elements in some steels and non-ferrous alloys is mentioned in this and the following chapters but a detailed coverage of the metallurgy of these metals is outside the scope of this volume.

Examples of Ferrous and Non-Ferrous Metals

Ferrous and non-ferrous metals are different both in chemistry and in the way they are used. There are a few key differences that can be used to distinguish between the two types. The defining difference between ferrous and non-ferrous metals is in their iron content. Both types may be pure or alloys. In general, ferrous metals contain iron. The very word ferrous comes from the Latin word for iron, ferrum.

In metallurgy , a non-ferrous metal is a metal, including alloys , that does not contain iron ferrite in appreciable amounts. Generally more costly than ferrous metals, non-ferrous metals are used because of desirable properties such as low weight e. For example, bauxite is used as flux for blast furnaces , while others such as wolframite , pyrolusite and chromite are used in making ferrous alloys. All pure metals are non-ferrous elements except iron also called ferrite, chemical symbol Fe, from the Latin ferrum , meaning "iron". Important non-ferrous metals include aluminium, copper, lead , nickel , tin , titanium and zinc, and alloys such as brass. Precious metals such as gold , silver and platinum and exotic or rare metals such as cobalt , mercury , tungsten , beryllium , bismuth , cerium , cadmium , niobium , indium , gallium , germanium , lithium , selenium , tantalum , tellurium , vanadium , and zirconium are also non-ferrous. Due to their extensive use, non-ferrous scrap metals are usually recycled.


Ferrous material possess a special property that their characteristics can be altered by heat treatment processes or by addition of small quantity of alloying.

Non-ferrous means every metal except iron and steel. Not mostly Fe. Aluminium is the number 2 metal. After steel of course. They are not magnetic and are usually more resistant to corrosion than ferrous metals.

Молодые люди поднялись по ступенькам, и двигатель автобуса снова взревел. Беккер вдруг понял, что непроизвольно рванулся вперед, перед его глазами маячил только один образ - черная помада на губах, жуткие тени под глазами и эти волосы… заплетенные в три торчащие в разные стороны косички. Красную, белую и синюю. Автобус тронулся, а Беккер бежал за ним в черном облаке окиси углерода. - Espera! - крикнул он ему вдогонку.

Партнер Танкадо обнаружен. Сьюзан замолчала. Танкадо мертв.

Когда Беккер наконец вышел из Гиральды в Апельсиновый сад, утреннее солнце уже нещадно пекло. Боль в боку немного утихла, да и глаза как будто обрели прежнюю зоркость. Он немного постоял, наслаждаясь ярким солнцем и тонким ароматом цветущих апельсиновых деревьев, а потом медленно зашагал к выходу на площадь. В этот момент рядом резко притормозил мини-автобус.

 Прошу прощения. Офицер покачал головой, словно не веря своим глазам. - Я должен был вам рассказать… но думал, что тот тип просто псих.
