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.

If the coefficient is high, the surface layers will expand greatly relative to the
unheated interior. Since ceramics are brittle, these heated layers will flake off by
a process called spoiling. It should be noted that in a noncubic crystal the

The wafer is then immersed in a solution of hydrofluoric acid that cuts through the
