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.

This is composed of a silicon nucleus (valence = 4 + ) surrounded by four
equidistant oxygen atoms. Since each oxygen atom has a valence of 2 - , the
charge is shared with adjacent SiO44~ tetrahedra (Fig. 7.4, page 290). This
produces a ...
The explanation is rather complex and depends principally on the fact that,
although eight electrons can be accommodated in the two 2s plus six 2p states,
an effect called hybridization takes place in a diamond. Instead of the four
This enables an electron of the solid to rise to the conduction band, which is
separated from the valence band by a definite energy gap. A hole is created in
the valence band as well. 2. The electron wanders through the structure until it
falls into ...
