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.

chapter Ceramic Structures and Their Properties The microstructure of a newly
invented ceramic called "Pyroceram" is shown in the photomicrograph.
Development of this ceramic is typical of the important advances taking place in
the very old ...
Diamond tools and wheels impregnated with diamond are invaluable in shaping
other hard ceramics. However, the cleavage on (111) planes is perfect, so a
crystal may be split with a sharp edge. Glass Ceramics (Pyroceram) We have ...
These examples show that although ceramics inherently have low tensile
strengths, they can still be used in tensile applications if residual surface
compressive stresses can be imposed on them. 8.13 Toughened ceramics Use of
