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.

14.4 Conductivity in metals Let us now begin to discuss why there are vast
differences in conductivity in different materials (Table 14.1). For the metals we
already have a partial picture of the metallic bond, in which the valence electrons
The electrical conductivity of a solid solution decreases linearly with increased
amount of solute. b. Minimum electrical resistivity of a pure element is obtained at
absolute zero. c. Metal tubing can be used as a current carrier, especially at low ...
