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.

Plastics are also generally resistant to water; they make excellent protective
coatings. However, there is a small percentage of water absorption in all cases
except Teflon and a very slight amount for polyethylene and polypropylene.
We take an initial reading of the electrical resistance of the gage with a precision
of 1 microhm. We then relieve the elastic strain by sectioning and take a second
resistance reading. If the gage length shortens, the resistance decreases, ...
When a voltage is applied, a small current can flow through the high resistance,
and the heating prevents fogging. Bulk conductivity can be developed in glass by
adding substances such as iron oxide. This leads to conduction by electron ...
