Abstract

Tungsten is a metal of high strategic value in the defense effort. It is used chiefly to improve creep strength in steels, although a significant percentage enters into the manufacture of cemented carbide tool bits. Therefore, in this age of mechanized warfare, quality and quantity of defense production depend greatly on tungsten.
