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.

Brasses There are a wide range of brass compositions, and the alloys with less
than about 15% zinc have corrosion characteristics similar to those of pure
copper. As the zinc content increases over 15%, the susceptibility to
dezincification and ...
of superplastic wrought zinc alloys contain from 20% to 24% aluminum. Strips
and sheets of these alloys can be "warm" formed by vacuum forming and similar
plastic forming operations. They can have extremely high elongations (100%+).
well to fresh zinc coatings. If zinc is to be used under a paint system, many mills
offer heat treated galvannealed products. Hot-dip sheet is annealed at a
temperature high enough to cause the zinc to convert to a protective zinc oxide.
