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.

Silica is the most important constituent of glass, but other oxides are added to
lower the melting point to simplify processing or to change the physical
characteristics, such as the index of refraction for optical or decorative glass.
There are three ...
The ratio is then 46.6/57.5 = 0.810. The ratio of the volume of the scale to the
volume of the parent metal is called the Pilling -Bedworth ratio. It may be
calculated from the formula Wd P-B ratio = ^ Dw where W = molecular weight of
the oxide, ...
The most insidious type is the effect of small amounts of vanadium pentoxide or
lead oxide in the gas phase. These oxides can combine with the normal metal
scale to provide a low- melting-point phase in the scale. This provides a liquid
