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.

Stabilizing means heating to 50 to 100°F (30 to 55°C) above the maximum
service temperature so that softening does not take place in service.
Specifications with the letter T involve heat treatment to produce age hardening.

These alloy steels give flexibility in heat treatment in two ways. First, an intricate
part of thin section can be more slowly cooled from the austenitic field, lessening
the susceptibility to cracking. Second, a part of thick section which would cool ...
ductile than gray cast iron because during the heat treatment graphite was
formed in clumplike nodules (something like spheroidal graphite); this graphite is
called "temper carbon." Since the discovery of ductile iron many malleable iron ...
