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.

The polarization of the cathode can determine whether the passive condition is
reached by the anode. In Fig. 12.6, for instance, two possible cathode
polarization curves have been superimposed on the anode polarization curve. In
the case of ...
However, when steel rivets are used in a copper sheet, all the metal loss is
concentrated in a small anodic region and there is a large area for cathode
reactions to absorb electrons. The corrosion is catastrophic. Figure 12.7a shows
the effect ...
12.15 Hydrogen damage In discussing the basic atom movements in corrosion
we said that hydrogen discharged at the cathode could form bubbles or dissolve
in the metal and diffuse through it. There are cases involving either hydrogen ...
