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.

However, considerable plastic deformation occurred in the copper rod, and yet
no fracture occurred. From the results of this simple experiment, we may
conclude that glass has a very low fracture toughness and that copper has a
much higher ...
This critical value is called the fracture toughness of the material. An expression
relating the fracture stress to the fracture toughness and the flaw size is (4) where
KK = fracture toughness (psiVinT or MPa^m), af = nominal stress at fracture (psi ...
In thinner sections, the fracture toughness is denoted as KcS For plane-stress
conditions, the thickness must be reported with fracture toughness, since Kc
depends heavily on thickness. We shall see later that the transition from plane-
stress to ...
