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.

MgO is also an important raw material and refractory. The unit cell is the sodium
chloride structure (Fig. 7.4). In many cases the refractories are prepared by
heating the mineral dolomite, a carbonate of magnesium and calcium, (Mg,Ca)
For this reason mullite is an important refractory. Spinels. There are two broad
uses of spinels, A2+B23+O4 (where A and B are metal ions): in the refractory and
in the electrical industry. In the refractories the phase MgAl2O4 is found in the ...
13.15 From the calculations of Prob. 13.1 explain why the manufacturer's catalog
of Chromel wire gives recommendations for the wire diameters for different
currents. Why is the allowable current lower for wires embedded in refractory
than for ...
