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.

There are three fundamental concepts that bear directly on nonequilibrium
conditions: (1^ diffusion. (2^ nucleation and ... Diffusion phenomena Diffusion is
the migration of atoms: it depends on time, temperature, and gradients. Let us
look at ...
This is the most rapid type of diffusion, because most interstitial sites or positions
are empty. Substitutional atoms diffuse more slowly, since the atoms have to wait
for a vacancy to jump into. Even in the most carefully prepared single crystal, ...
The carbon atoms dissolve and build up in the surface layer, and some carbon
diffuses to the layers beneath. Diffusion processes are also important in many
cases involving change not merely in the surface layers but in the internal
