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.

4.2 Phase diagrams for polyphase alloys Up to this point we have discussed only
the simple but important case of single- phase alloys. In these, all the grains in
the metal have the same crystal structure, the same analysis, and the same ...
The toughness of the material can be related to the area under the stress-strain
curve, which will be discussed further in Chapter 13. In effect, for some polymers,
a higher modulus of elasticity results in a lower overall strain at fracture and ...
When circuits are to be formed above the lower layers, thin films may be
evaporated in predetermined patterns, using the same photoresist techniques
just discussed. Polycrystalline silicon is laid down by deposition of chemical
vapor by ...
