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.

In the case of a precipitate in the microstructure, the properties obtained depend
on whether the shape is spheroidal or platelike. 5. Distribution of the phases. If
the slab is to encounter bending stresses, the steel should be placed closer to the
6.47 Describe the microstructures of the following alloys completely, using as
many of the numbers of the given phrases as needed. The same number may be
used in several answers. (In all cases the balance of the composition is iron.) ...
In the next section, dealing with microstructure, we shall see that there is a
structural difference. Before we leave the topic of macrostructure, we should
orient ourselves regarding directions in the tree, so that the correlation with micro
