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.

The molecules are made up of a backbone, or skeleton, of covalently bonded
carbon atoms, with other atoms — such as hydrogen, nitrogen, fluorine, chlorine,
sulfur, and oxygen — attached to the other carbon bonds at the sides (Fig. 1.6).
We should emphasize that in either addition or condensation polymerization, if
the molecules are only bifunctional, a linear or chainlike polymer is formed — the
thermoplastic polymer. On the other hand, if one of the molecules is at least ...
Ring Scission Ring scission is related to addition polymerization and also to
crosslinking in that two molecules are joined by a third. However, in this case a
ring structure such as an epoxide group, O / \ — C— C— I I is broken by
