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.

7.10 Titanium Alloys Titanium and titanium alloys are used in two quite distinct
applications: corrosion-resistant parts and highly stressed parts from low
temperatures up to about 650°C (1200°F). In the latter case the strength-to-
weight ratio is ...
8.1 Overview We tend to take ferrous (iron-base) alloys for granted because they
are so common in everyday applications. In fact, approximately 85% of all of the
metal tonnage used for engineering applications in the United States is based ...
14.7 Foams The average engineer is aware mostly of low-stress applications of
foam, such as in packing material, drinking cups, inexpensive coolers, and home
insulation. However, the performance of elastomer foam in higher-stress ...
