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.
For example, if we dissolve 15% silicon in liquid aluminum, we have a single
liquid phase, but we find two solid phases after freezing, similar to those
illustrated in Fig. 4.16 and c. If we separate these phases at room temperature
and analyze ...
The field of ceramics and related materials covers a wide range of objects. Some
are very beautiful, such as statues and fine china; others very useful, such as the
ceramic magnets in TV sets; still others very common, such as wash-bowls and ...
[Hint: n, is related to the band gap. What does this tell you about the relative
usefulness of silicon vs. germanium p-n junctions as rectifiers?] (Math portion of
Section 14.11) 14.33 [ESIEJ] a. Repeat Example 14.4 for a temperature of 50°C.
