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.

BCC: a = 3.32 A to HCP: a = 2.956 A c = 4.683 A What is the volume change?
ANSWER The volume of the BCC is (3.32 A)3 = 36.6 A3 for the two atoms per
unit cell. The volume of the HCP is determined from the observation that there are
(That is, sand fills voids in gravel, cement fills voids between sand, and water fills
the remaining voids.) Therefore, we calculate the space occupied by each
component: True volume of gravel = 2(g Jj^°!jg£ = 1 .86 ft3 (0.0526 m3) In other
When a metal is exposed to air, for example, it is important to determine first
whether the scale occupies a smaller or larger volume than the metal it came
from. For instance, if we oxidize the outer layer of a piece of magnesium, the
volume of ...
