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.

For example, if we talk about the effect of nickel on the structure of iron, we mean
the effect of atomic interaction, the effect on the dimensions of the unit cell, and
the changes in microstructure and macrostructure. Naturally we will discuss each
In the case of a precipitate in the microstructure, different properties are obtained
depending on whether the shape is spheroidal or platelike. 5. Distribution of the

Each group has a characteristic microstructure. The microstructure of the
softwoods is simpler and is shown in Fig. 10.7. Ninety percent of the structure is
made up of longitudinal cells called "tra- cheids." These are about 0.1 in. (0.254
