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.

This reaction is different from the e.utec.tic. reaction in the 12.6% silicon alloy in
the aluminum-silicon system, which reacts on cooling: L cooling,S1 + S2 (a) (P)
We therefore give the S, + L co° mg , g2 reaction a different name: peritectic.
Below 2098°F (1148°C): the eutectic reaction, L -» y + carbide 2. From 2098 to
1341°F (1148 to 727°C): from the eutectic to the eutectoid, y -» + carbide 3. At
1341°F (727°C): the eutectoid reaction, y -» <* + carbide (as pearlite) In the first ...
Chemical Principles 12.3 Does the metal react? In analyzing corrosion, the first
question is: Does the metal react with its environment? If so, what is the nature of
the corrosion product? A gold wire placed in distilled water simply does not react.
