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.

Compare the Si— O bonds with those of diamond. EXAMPLE 1.1 Sketch the
valence electron configuration in an S042~ ion. ANSWER We will assume that
the valence electrons of sulfur and oxygen interact and are shared. In the figure
The attraction results from unsymmetrical charge distribution rather than primary
bonds. Note that molecules rather than ions (as in the ionic bond) are attracted.
