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.

There is also activation polarization at the anode. This is the barrier the metal
atom or ion encounters in leaving the metal specimen and entering the solution.
This value is larger for the transition metals iron, cobalt, nickel, and chromium
A material that passivates exhibits the anode polarization curve shown in Fig.
12.8. As the anode is driven to higher current densities (generally by exposure to
an oxidizing acid), it reaches a maximum value called icritical. On reaching this ...
12.41 In each of the following cases, write balanced ion-electron equations for
anode and cathode reactions and calculate (where requested) the voltage
developed at startup. Assume 1-molar ion concentrations. (Summary of Chapter
