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 polymers we will find that in a related way the properties are functions of
the mers of which the polymer is made up, of the arrangement of different mers in
the polymer, of the size and shape of the molecules, and of their distribution ...
Amorphous polymers exhibit behavior similar to glasses, passing from a viscous
to a rigid structure at the glass transition temperature Tg. A rubbery range is also
encountered above Tg. When a linear polymer is made of several different mers,
Elastomers are polymers with molecular structures which uncoil readily,
exhibiting very high values of elastic elongation. Adhesives are divided into three
groups, based on whether they operate by permanent liquid films, application of
a liquid ...
