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 Metallic Bond We know from elementary chemistry that the atomic structure
of any element is made up of a positively charged nucleus surrounded by
electrons revolving around it at different distances. The atomic number is equal to
The so-called lanthanide series of rare earths, from cerium (atomic number = 58)
to lutetium (atomic number = 71), are even more alike than the transition metals,
because the only changes in electrons are in the second shell below the outer ...
8: 1s2, 2s22p4 This element has 6 electrons in the shell beyond the stable
helium shell of 2. It therefore tends to accept 2 additional electrons to form a
stable outer shell of 8. Since the element is an electron acceptor, it is a nonmetal.
