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.

Careful observation shows that a shear type fracture, as shown by the presence
of a shear lip, is characteristic of the specimens tested at higher temperatures,
while shear is absent in the specimens tested at the lowest temperatures.
The electron micrograph shows another, special type of precipitation in a nickel-
base superalloy. The matrix is FCC, but the precipitate is Ni3(Al,Ti). This gives an
exceptional combination of high-temperature strength and oxidation resistance ...
Figure 13.20a shows the general types for the ductile and brittle cases. The
appearance of the fracture is generally dull. In low-strength, high-ductility
materials, evidence of plastic deformation can be found. Propagation of Brittle
