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 will see in the next section that the rate of transformation of austenite to ferrite
and carbide, as in pearlite, is a result of nucleation and growth. 6.8 Austenite
transformation The key to understanding the variation in hardness is a
6.12 Summary Let us summarize the austenite transformation of an 0.8 percent
carbon steel shown in Fig. 6.15. 1. Above 1333°C (723°C): Austenite is the stable
phase from the equilibrium diagram. 2. 1333 to 1050°F (723 to 566°C): (a) ...
The massive iron carbide is converted to nodules of graphite plus iron called "
temper carbon." The properties are similar to ductile iron. Ferrite a iron, BCC, with
a maximum of 0.02 percent carbon in solid solution. Austenite y iron, FCC, with a
