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.

3.19 Effect of grain size on properties The preceding discussion showed that we
can control the grain size of the final part by the combination of cold work and
annealing. With large amounts of cold work and rapid annealing the grain size
We can finish the part with higher hardness and lower ductility than desired, and
then anneal it to obtain the desired combination. 2. We can use the proper
amount of cold work for the final operation to reach the required hardness level.
where d is the diameter at which we wish to start the final deformation (starting, of
course, with an annealed structure). Solving, we have d= 0.235 in. (0.596 cm)
Therefore, we obtain 20% cold work going from a 0.235- to 0.21-in. (0.596- to ...
