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.

3.1 General Now that we have described the nature of metal structures we can
advance to observe the effects of stress and temperature on them. These effects
are important for two reasons. 1. To form parts into the required shape and to ...
where W = molecular weight of the oxide d = density of the metal w = atomic
weight of the metal D = density of the oxide When this ratio is less than 1, the
scale is nonprotective because of cracking. On the other hand, if the ratio is much
These oxides can combine with the normal metal scale to provide a low-melting-
point phase in the scale which provides a liquid with rapid oxygen transport to the
metal so that attack is accelerated. Another interesting case is called "internal ...
