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.

fabricated into shapes of excellent toughness and strength. All structural and
automobile body steels fall into this group. Most steel castings such as railroad
car parts are also in this composition range. Let us follow the cooling of a typical
It should be emphasized that in order to achieve equilibrium, slow cooling must
be used. A more rapid cooling such as air cooling would result in a finer pearlite
and is called "normalizing." A slow cooling such as furnace cooling through the ...
The most significant point of this plot is not the hardness at a given distance but
the hardness at a given cooling rate. (The cooling rates have been measured at
the different points and are quite constant for different steels.) We must bear in ...
