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 many cases, such as silica (Si02), only a portion of the bonding is covalent.
This takes place when there is a compromise between perfectly balanced
attraction for the shared electrons, as in diamond, and strong ionic attraction, as
in sodium ...
For example, pure silica glass has a high melting point and the addition of Na20

phosphate from the bones gives a lower-melting-point material, and the
