It is the author's hope that by systematically investigating the inclusions in ingot iron and comparing their specific properties with the properties of substances known to exist as inclusions, a rapid and accurate method may be found to identify them using a polarizing microscope. Where possible photomicrographs will be used to illustrate the results obtained so that the reader may obtain a better picture of the effects produced by polarized light.


The pages of the thesis is incorrectly numbered, therefore there is no page twelve.
