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.

Next a line is drawn through this point parallel to the straight line portion of the
stress-strain curve until it intersects this curve. This intersection gives the value of
the yield strength, 40,000 psi (276 MN/m2). The logic behind this construction is ...
5.3 Calculate the parameter called the "strength- to- weight ratio" or "specific
strength" for several of the higher-strength aluminum alloys of Table 5.2, and
compare these to high-strength steel with yield strength of 250,000 psi (1.725 x ...
11.3 Tensile strength and yield strength It is important to distinguish between
tensile strength and yield strength because in ductile materials there may be
quite a difference between these two properties, while in brittle materials there is
