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.

14.1 General It is not generally recognized that the development of materials with
new high levels of magnetic properties is responsible for the growth of many new
devices such as the tape recorder, ferrite magnets in television sets, memory ...
14.5 Magnetic domains For many years physicists speculated that a block of iron
contained many tiny magnets that would line up under the influence of a
magnetic field. In 1912 Weiss went further and postulated that there were
One of the ways of obtaining a strong initial alignment of domains is to heat the
material above its Curie temperature and then cool it under the influence of an
externally imposed magnetic field. This is analogous to polarizing a ferroelectric ...
