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.

alloy is heated for extended periods or at too high a temperature, the precipitate
coarsens and the hardening is diminished. This is called "over-aging" (Fig. 4.31).
Note that not all precipitates produce this degree of hardening in the aged ...
Diffusion is important because it governs the time required for a strengthening
precipitate to go into solution or to precipitate. Also, the hardening of a surface by
diffusing carbon from the atmosphere, as in carburizing, is important. Nucleation
As discussed in Chapter 4, this alloy is a candidate for age hardening if the
precipitate is coherent, a condition which is found to exist. To develop a fine
coherent precipitate, we give the alloy a two- step treatment. First we heat the
