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
Also, common metals such as nickel can be cooled to 200°C below the
equilibrium freezing point without solidifying. The usual impression is that this
supercooling or undercooling is done by fast cooling, but it is important to
understand that ...
Liquidus The temperature at which a liquid begins to freeze under equilibrium
conditions (solid first forms). Solidus The temperature at which the liquid phase
disappears on cooling or at which melting begins on heating. Eutectic
