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.

In sharp contrast to the BCC and FCC iron structures which are both ductile (over
40 percent elongation) and soft (BHN 100 to 150), ... 6.4 Hypoeutectoid steels We
will consider first the hypoeutectoid steels (up to 0.8 percent carbon) (Fig. 6.3) ...
Ferrite (a) begins to precipitate at the austenite (y) grain boundaries at 1560°F (
849°C) (Fig. 6.3). This continues to 1334°F (724°C) and the y changes from 0.3 to
0.8 percent carbon as a result (tie line changes in the a + y region upon cooling).
Gray cast iron An iron-carbon alloy with 2 to 4 percent carbon and graphitizing
elements such as silicon. Most of the carbon is in the ... Hypoeutectoid steel Steel
