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.

We say, therefore, that the "fracture toughness" of the usual ceramic is low. As we
shall see, in some cases, such as Pyroceram, the situation has been improved by
the controlled growth of a very fine crystal network. An alternative to the tensile ...
II MECHANICAL PROPERTIES OF MATERIALS; COMPOSITE STRUCTURES
THE catastrophic failure of certain steel ships, often while moored quietly at
dockside, has led to extensive investigation of the "fracture toughness" of
It may also provide a layer of intermediate modulus, improving stress transfer
without fracture. SUMMARY While ... The concept of fracture toughness is
particularly important in designing with high-strength materials. Notched impact
tests such ...
