Engineering Materials: Properties and Selection
For courses in Metallurgy and Materials Science.
Co-authored by Kenneth G. Budinski and Michael K. Budinski, his son, with over 50 years of combined industry experience in the field, this practical, understandable introduction to engineering materials theory and industry-standard selection practices provides students with the working knowledge to (1) make an informed selection of materials for engineering applications and (2) correctly specify materials on drawings and purchasing documents. Encompassing all significant material systems metals, ceramics, plastics, and composites this text incorporates the most up-to-date information on material usage and availability, addresses the increasingly global nature of the field, and reflects the suggestions of numerous adopters of previous editions.

Sometimes diffusion treatments can be used to provide corrosion resistance. It is
well known that nitriding will help prevent atmospheric rusting of steels.
Chromizing is effective in improving the corrosion resistance of steels. On the
other hand, ...
The one factor that comes to light in almost all corrosion applications of aluminum
is that pure aluminum has the best atmospheric corrosion resistance, as well as
resistance to almost all other corrosive environments. Most of the elements used
Some are age hardenable, and the plethora of different alloys evolved to meet
varying strength and corrosion ... Table 17-1 ACI casting designations for some
