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.

We see that there are four electrons in the outer shell (Fig. 9.1a), giving a valence
of four. With each electron a covalent bond can be formed to another carbon
atom or to a foreign atom (Fig. 9.16). The elements encountered most frequently ...
Through the acquisition of thermal energy, an electron attains a high enough
energy to leave its valence position. (b) The process shown in (a) has led to the
presence of an electron in the conduction band and a hole in the valence band.
(photon) Valence band Fig. 15.4 Development of luminescence. Step 1: The
electron is excited by ultraviolet radiation into the conduction band. Step 2: The
electron falls into the trap, emitting an infrared photon (the trap is an intermediate
