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.

that the silicon "melts," for the melting point of silicon is far above the temperature
of the liquid aluminum. The silicon diffuses from the surface of the solid into the
liquid. After the silicon is dissolved, we cool the melt. We find two important ...

Let us ask the question: What are the relative amounts of solid and liquid in the
alloy containing 97 percent aluminum and 3 percent silicon overall composition
when it is at equilibrium at 600°C? In other words, it is evident from the diagram ...
