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.

There are four important special cases of control of the structure which we
discussed in the previous chapter. These are: (1) controlled crystallization from
the melt, (2) controlled nucleation in solid, (3) martensite reaction, (4) age-
We have discussed the pronounced effects of small cracks in lowering the
strength of glass. A crack is particularly disastrous in glass because there are no "
crack stoppers" such as grain boundaries and the mass is homogeneous.
The brittle fracture of the ship results from a combination of constraints and
lowered temperature, as discussed in the text. In this chapter we will take up
mechanical properties which have not been discussed in any detail to this point
and which ...
