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.

3.3 Plastic strain, permanent deformation We have just described elastic strain
using the case of the physics experiment with a wire suspended from the ceiling
and loaded with weights at the bottom. Occasionally an inventive student adds a
It is not used much in design for ductile materials because considerable plastic
strain has occurred by the time this load-carrying capacity has been reached.
However, it is a good indication of defects because if flaws or harmful inclusions
The directional weakness can be minimized by bonding wood layers properly
with a plastic, as in plywood. 10.7 Special plastic products Before considering the
specific fields, we should discuss a few important special plastic products.
