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.

Fatigue testing in its simplest form involves preparing test specimens with
carefully polished surfaces and testing them at different stresses to obtain an S-N
curve relating S (stress required for failure) to N (number of cycles) (Fig. 3.18).
13.9 Schematic of S-N curve, showing that the total fatigue life consists of two
phases: crack initiation and crack propagation. Note that, at high stresses, N, <
Np; at low stresses, Np < Nr Figure 13.10a shows an example of such localized ...
Fatigue 4. Stress corrosion Tensile Overload Such failure results when the
applied stress exceeds the ultimate tensile strength of the material. The
appearance of the fracture depends strongly on the material's ductility. Figure
13.20a shows the ...
