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.

Above line AB the melt is entirely liquid. AB is called the liquidus. Below DE the
melt is entirely solid. DE is called the solidus. Between AB and DE we label the
region liquid plus solid (L + a). If we continue our experiments, we can complete ...
The principal components of the ternary diagram for the slag are three oxides,
CaO, SiO2, and Al2O3, instead of three metals. The million- dollar liquidus is
shown in Fig. 4.13. The significance is that a low melting combination occurs in
9.9 The glass transition temperature Tg and the melting temperature Tm When a
piece of glass is cooled below the melting range, it is still plastic for a temperature
interval but finally reaches a temperature where it is rigid. This is called the ...
