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.

13.5 Applications Now let us review the conductivity of some common alloys (Fig.
13.5). We see that the monovalent elements silver, copper, and gold are best.
Pure aluminum also has good conductivity because there are many unt lied p ...
15.9 Thermal conductivity The carriers of thermal energy are electrons in metals
and phonons (quanta of energy) in other solids. The velocity of a phonon is the
speed of sound, but since many collisions occur, the net thermal conductivity is ...
Refraction is due to the slower speed of light in a material compared to a vacuum,
and the index of refraction increases with density. The thermal properties of major
importance are heat capacity, thermal conductivity, and thermal expansion.
