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.

However, BCC metals, polymers, and ceramics show a transition temperature
below which brittle behavior is encountered. It should be emphasized that there
is great variation in the actual transition temperatures for different materials. For
In the use of polymers the temperature for brittle fracture (elongation less than 1
percent) can be found by tensile testing as well as by impact. In the case of the
slower-speed tensile test, brittle behavior is encountered at temperatures well ...
Other factors are stress concentration, brittle fracture, notches, fatigue,
temperature, and wear resistance. Stress concentration may be planned or
accidental, as in "stress raisers." Holes and sharp corners may lead to fracture
even if a ...
