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 most important effect of heat-treating steel is the change from a one-phase to
a two-phase structure. The precipitation of the second phase, iron carbide,
depends on the movement of atoms by diffusion. The controlled precipitation of ...
Specifications with the letter T involve heat treatment to produce age hardening.
These are used only for alloys that develop coherent precipitates, the 2XXX,
6XXX, and 7XXX series. The code is: T3 Solution treatment followed by strain ...
Both grades of steel are available in a higher-strength grade because of a
difference in processing not requiring heat treatment or alloy additions. What are
these grades called? 6.8 The age-hardening process for aluminum alloys and
