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.

Magnesium Alloys 5.4 General The alloys of magnesium are competitive with
those of aluminum because the density of magnesium is two-thirds that of
aluminum. Therefore, many aircraft parts are made of magnesium alloys. Also,
there has ...
5.2 The two most important coherent precipitates in age-hardening aluminum
alloys are CuA12 and Mg2Si. The solubility of Mg2Si varies from 1.8 percent at
the eutectic temperature to less than 0.1 percent at room temperature. Explain
