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.

7.4 Copper Alloys in General The copper alloys have a unique combination of
characteristics: high thermal and electrical conductivity, high corrosion resistance
, generally high ductility and formability, and interesting color for architectural
For applications in which embrittlement would be a problem, two other grades of
copper are available: phosphorus deoxidized copper (C 12200), in which the
dissolved oxygen is eliminated by a phosphorus addition to the melt, and OFHC ...
