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.

The material is too irregular to be crystalline (copolymers show little crystallinity).
We recall that when a piece of glass is cooled below the melting range, it is still
plastic for a temperature interval but finally reaches a temperature where it is rigid
11.10 Temperature effects Let us take up now the effects of the temperature of
testing on the fracture strength. One of the most common tests is the so-called "
Charpy impact test," Fig. 11.2a. A square bar with a V notch is struck by a
coupled with the use of steel with a transition temperature (Charpy) near the
operating temperature. However, it has been found that the Charpy test does not
give a wholly satisfactory answer, as shown by the recent failures of oil tankers,
