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 load on the specimen is recorded continuously. The load can be converted
to engineering stress by multiplying by 5, since the area of the 0.505-in.-diameter
specimen is 0.2 in.2 and engineering stress is load divided by the original area.
The load carried in the fiber will be the stress in the fiber times its area, and
similarly in the matrix. We can write Load carried in fiber - a, A, Load carried in
matrix - (8) or, using the relation o- = Ee, Pi m EM Pm Em*JL (9) But e, = em and
Under one type of wear, involving high loads and good lubrication, the second
structure would probably perform better, particularly if the load crushed the iron at
the edges of the graphite. However, with moderate loads and intermittent ...
