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.

Thus we see that the phase composition of or. in the 3% silicon alloy at 600°C is
1.2% silicon. Similarly ... This method of determining the phase compositions in a
two-phase field is so important that we will state it as a simple rule. ^uleT^For ...
The overall composition can be any value in the two- phase field.) 2. Instead of
temperature, let us fix the phase composition of a in equilibrium with L. This fixes
temperature and the composition of the L phase, again by the tie line relationship
These are the reactions most often employed to strengthen the two-phase
materials that will be described in the chapters that follow. DEFINITIONS Age
hardening A three-step process consisting of heating an alloy to dissolve all or
part of a ...
