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.

The mechanical strength of porcelain, like most ceramic materials, is greater in
compression than in tension. For this reason, disk insulator units, which are in
tension during service, must be designed to ensure that the main stresses on the
In tempered glass we take advantage of the fact that the compressive strength of
glass is many times that in tension. Therefore, in a sheet of glass that is subjected
to bending we would like to have residual compression in the surface layers.
