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.

Instead of temperature, let us fix the phase composition of a in equilibrium with L.
This fixes temperature and the composition of the L phase, again by the tie line
relationship. Suppose an investigator reports a field where a, fi, and L are present
4.18 Segregation The key to understanding the phenomenon of segregation is
first to realize that the crystals that freeze initially are different in composition from
the liquid. Second, to satisfy equilibrium conditions, the composition of the solid ...
Phase diagram A graph showing the phase or phases that are present for a given
composition as a function of temperature (a collection of solubility lines). Liquidus
The temperature at which a liquid begins to freeze under equilibrium ...
