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.

It is the bonds between the molecules, which allow the sliding (and finally rupture
), that are important. These bonds, called ... Even when ionic and covalent bonds
are present, there is still some imbalance in the electrical charge in a molecule.
In metals, the metallic bond leads to an electron gas that provides excellent
conductivity. In ceramics, the combination of ionic and covalent bonds leads to
high strength, brittle fracture, and cleavage. In polymers, the covalent bonds
within the ...
