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.

It is found that under different conditions of temperature and pressure, different
crystal structures, that is, different unit cells, for ice are formed, called ice I, II, III,
etc. These are different solid phases of the same chemical composition. In a
Let us go to the other extreme and test a single crystal of iron in ... If we stress the
single crystal along different crystal directions, we obtain values quite different
from 30 million psi (2.07 x 105 MN/m2), as follows: Although this seems ...
13.16 Interrelated electrical-mechanical effects (electromechanical coupling)
Every radio amateur has heard of the piezoelectric effect of a quartz crystal. If
pressure is applied to a quartz crystal, the ends become charged or, conversely,
if an ...
