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.

After a little study we shall see, however, that some of the most advanced
materials — such as special stainless steels for corrosion resistance, alloys for
high-temperature service in gas turbines, and ductile iron for castings — are all
based on ...
Also, some of the alloys have low ductility which is adequate for service but not
for rolling. The investment casting process is the most widely used method and is
capable of producing intricate shapes. White Iron, Gray Iron, Ductile Iron, and ...
