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.

5.5 Copper alloys in general The copper alloys have a unique combination of
characteristics: high thermal and electrical conductivity, high corrosion resistance
, generally high ductility and formability, and interesting color for architectural
5.8 Cast copper alloys The cast alloys offer a wider range of structures than the
wrought alloys because high ductility is not required for working. Of great
importance are the high-lead alloys for bearings and the high-tin alloys for gears.
If the bonded strip is restrained between flat plates, the copper is prevented from
attaining the length it would have reached if it were not bonded to the iron. It is
under compressive stress. The iron, on the other hand, is stretched by the ...
