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.

When sodium with one valence electron and chlorine with seven react, the
sodium gives up its electron to form a stable outer shell for the chlorine. This is
called an ionic bond because Na+ and CI" ions are formed and are naturally
Sodium Chlorine (a) Fig. 1.4 Greatly simplified sketch of the formation of the ionic
bond in sodium chloride, (a) Un-ionized sodium and chlorine atoms, (b) Ionized
sodium and chloride ions. (The eight outer electrons in the chloride ion are at ...
We find that the electrons that form the electron gas in sodium, for example, must
have energies slightly different from one another. Therefore, instead of having the
sharp energy level of the single 3s electron in an isolated sodium atom, a band ...
