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 are already familiar with the control of austenite transformation to ferrite and
other products, so let us study first the factors affecting the massive carbide and
graphite structures. 6.33 Relationships between white iron, gray iron, ductile iron,
It is not necessary to learn a new diagram because for all practical purposes all
we need to do is to substitute graphite for carbide in the two-phase fields, as
shown in Fig. 6.45, and move the right-hand vertical line to 100 percent carbon.
Therefore, a fracture test of cast irons will at least tell whether the high-carbon
phase is carbide or graphite. Ductile Iron. While gray iron is excellent for parts
such as engine blocks because the graphite flakes give good machinability, ...
