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.

Ferrite (a) begins to precipitate at the austenite (y) grain boundaries at 1560°F (
849°C) (Fig. 6.3). This continues to 1334°F (724°C) and the y changes from 0.3 to
0.8 percent carbon as a result (tie line changes in the a + y region upon cooling).
However, until 1333°F (723°C) we have isothermal transformation only to ferrite.
If we quench from 1500° F (815°C) to below 1333°F (723°C) to as low as lOOCF (
538°C), we find first a period of ferrite formation, then pearlite. We notice too that
2.5 percent carbon white cast iron 6.3 If a sample of 3.3 percent carbon white cast
iron were heat-treated so that only ferrite and graphite were present, what would
be the percent by volume of graphite in the sample? (The specific gravity of iron ...
