Frederick Brian Pickering
Additional recommended knowledge
His notable research and development work in the field of physical metallurgy throughout the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s laid the foundations for much of the physical metallurgy of high strength, low alloy steels. His classic Physical Metallurgy and the Design of Steels (ISBN 0-85334-752-2), originally published in 1978 by Applied Science Publishers, London, continues to be recommended reading for the majority of Metallurgical Engineering and Materials Science university courses around the world.
Pickering worked at the British Steel Corporation in Rotherham and Sheffield, becoming a key member of the BSC Swinden Laboratories staff and, later, a Professor at the Sheffield City Polytechnic (now Sheffield Hallam University).
Prof. Pickering was awarded the 1994 Bessemer Gold Medal for outstanding services to the steel industry, by the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining.
He was born in Rotherham, South Yorkshire, England.
