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 normal engineering problem is to find methods of optimizing or controlling
the packing factor or, more importantly, the porosity, which is 1 minus the packing
factor. EXAMPLE 8.1 In the packaging industry container shape is important.
As an example of the first case, we form long chainlike polyethylene molecules.
Upon heating, the van der Waals forces between these weaken and the material
melts (thermoplastic). In the second case phenol-formaldehyde, for example, can
For example, phenol + formaldehyde gives phenol-formaldehyde resin + water.
Network structure The structure formed when one or more of the monomers is tri-
or polyfunctional. Crosslinking Connections made between polymer molecules ...
