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.

5.1 General We are now entering a new portion of the text, devoted to the actual
engineering alloys used in structures and components. Let us spend a few
moments reflecting on what we have studied and how it applies to this new
EXAMPLE 5.4 The discussion in the chapter suggests that most commercial
alloys have compositions close to the extremities of any phase diagram. In other
words, compositions such as 50%X, 50%Y are seldom used. Suggest why.
Copper alloys Brass An alloy of copper and zinc. Bronze An alloy of copper and a
specified metal, such as tin bronze, aluminum bronze, silicon bronze.
Cupronickel An alloy of copper and 10 to 30% nickel. Ferrous alloys Alloys that
have iron ...
