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.

For this reason the melting point or solidus temperature of ceramics is important.
Another important factor in using refractories to resist high temperatures is the
thermal coefficient of expansion a, also called the "linear coefficient of expansion.
Table 7.2 COEFFICIENT OF EXPANSION IN SOME CERAMICS In some
materials the coefficient of expansion for polycrystalline material is not the mean
of these values, because cracking results from the difference in expansion in
15.7 Basic relations determining the coefficient of thermal expansion. The
change in interatomic distance with temperature is determined as follows. At 0 K
the balance between the attractive forces of oppositely charged ions (the
