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.

In the case of silica, the four outer electrons of silicon can be shared with the
outer shell electron from each of four oxygen atoms to make a stable shell of
eight. Thus we have each silicon atom surrounded by a tetrahedron of four
This is copper that has been refined electrolytically, and the term "tough pitch"
refers to the oxygen level of about 0.04 percent (present as copper oxide) which
gives a certain appearance to the ingot. This grade of copper is widely used, ...
These oxides can combine with the normal metal scale to provide a low-melting-
point phase in the scale which provides a liquid with rapid oxygen transport to the
metal so that attack is accelerated. Another interesting case is called "internal ...
