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.

Stabilizing means heating to 50 to 100°F (30 to 55°C) above the maximum
service temperature so that softening does not take place in service.
Specifications with the letter T involve heat treatment to produce age hardening.
These are used ...
15.8 Heat capacity For our purposes it is sufficient to discuss Cp, the heat
capacity at constant pressure. It is simpler to begin with the heat capacity at say
20°C. We find that most simple solids show a value of approximately 6 cal/mole-K
The thermal properties of major importance are heat capacity, thermal
conductivity, and thermal expansion. Heat capacity is the energy required to raise
the temperature of a system 1 K and may be thought of as increasing the kinetic
