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.

Let us go to the other extreme and test a single crystal of iron rather than a wire,
which contains thousands of grains or crystals. If we stress the single crystal
along different crystal directions, we get values quite different from 30 million psi (
1964) nating voltage is applied, the crystal oscillates, giving out a sound wave of
constant frequency. Figure 14.24 shows the reason for the generation of a sound
wave. Let us assume that we have a single crystal with the dipoles of the unit ...
You can find the most striking evidence of this effect by heating a transparent
uncolored crystal of sodium chloride in sodium vapor and observing the
development of a yellow color in the material. The mechanism is as follows:
Sodium atoms ...
