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 process to be used is largely dependent on whether we have a thermoplastic
or thermosetting material. In Table 9.3 we have listed representative groups of
plastics, and we see that injection and extrusion molding are predominant for the
Is it thermoplastic or thermosetting? 9.2 Consider polyvinylchloride (PVC). a.
Sketch the polymer and the copolymer with ethylene. b. Could either crystallize? (
Hint: Polyvinylchloride is syndiotactic.) c. Is it thermoplastic or thermosetting?
We have arranged the structures of the representative thermoplastic and
thermosetting materials (Tables 10.1 and 10.2) in the same order in which they
were summarized in the preceding chapter (Table 9.4), with the addition of
