Engineering Materials and Their Applications
This edition of the classic text/reference book has been updated and revised to provide balanced coverage of metals, ceramics, polymers and composites. The first five chapters assess the different structures of metals, ceramics and polymers and how stress and temperature affect them. Demonstrates how to optimize a material's structure by using equilibrium data (phase diagrams) and nonequilibrium conditions, especially precipitation hardening. Discusses the structures, characteristics and applications of the important materials in each field. Considers topics common to all materials--corrosion and oxidation, failure analysis, processing of electrical and magnetic materials, materials selection and specification. Contains special chapters on advanced and large volume engineering materials plus abundant examples and problems.

Let us begin by applying this classification to the aluminum alloys. 7.2 Aluminum
Alloys The first group of alloys whose actual engineering applications we will
consider are the aluminum alloys. As you read through this discussion, note how
In the aluminum alloys the wrought materials can be divided into two groups: the
single-phase materials, which are strengthened by solid-solution and work
hardening, and the polyphase alloys, which are age-hardened and may also be ...
Corrosion-resistant nail 7.2 lES/Ef] A 7075 T6 aluminum (5.6% Zn, 2.5% Mg, 1.6
