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 matrix of the material is similar to steel with good ductility, but the flakes act
as notches and the ductility is below 1 percent. Adding a small amount of
magnesium (0.05 percent magnesium) causes the graphite to crystallize in the
form of ...
There are many examples in which a balance between hardness and ductility is
desired. After quenching a typical claw hammer head, the striking face is
tempered to 60 Rc but the claws are tempered to 48 Rc because greater
toughness is ...
Gray cast iron is soft and machinable because the iron carbide is replaced by
graphite flakes, but the ductility is low because of the notch effect of the graphite.
Ductile iron exhibits better ductility than gray cast iron because the shape of the ...
