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.

The family of iron alloys has the widest range of microstructures and properties,
ranging from high-strength steels to the lower-strength but elegantly castable
gray cast iron. More than 90% of the tonnage (1980) of metallic materials is
based on ...
also describe the appearance of the fracture of the cast irons. Therefore, a
fracture test of cast iron will at least tell whether the high-carbon phase is carbide
or graphite. Ductile Iron Although gray iron is excellent for parts such as engine
EXAMPLE 6.10 Why is it difficult to produce malleable cast iron in large sections?
ANSWER Malleable cast iron must first be cast white (with carbide as the high-
carbon constituent). In large sections the cooling rate is slow enough for graphite
