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.

Layers of copper-nickel alloy over a copper core give us the U.S. quarter.
Because of diffusion, the bond between the layers is not mechanical but a true
metallurgical bond in which the composition changes gradually across the
EXAMPLE 7.6 Calculate the elastic strain and then the stress developed when
the surface layer of a fire clay brick is heated from 100 to 600°F (38 to 315°C).
ANSWER Assume that a = 2.5 x 10"6(°F)"1 [4.5 x 10-6(°C)"1] and the modulus of
A layer of phosphorus-rich material builds up in the surface, and the reaction is
governed by relations similar to those studied in the carburization of steel. For
example, a layer one micrometer deep is attained in 1 hour. A second heat
