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.

Since diffusion is slower at room temperature, the equilibrium amount of 8 is slow
to precipitate and the rate of hardening is slow. At an intermediate temperature
we obtain more rapid hardening. However, if the alloy is heated for extended ...
some atom spacing in the precipitate is close to a spacing in the matrix that a so-
called "coherent" precipitate is obtained. A region of strained material then
surrounds the precipitate particle, making it- difficult for slip to occur in this region,
Aluminum and titanium have a special use in providing a very fine precipitate
called y, (read "gamma prime"). The name is derived from the fact that the
structure is close to the y solid solution. On the other hand, y, has the formula
NijAl, and ...
