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.

EXAMPLE 4.2 In the manufacture of many sliding and rotating parts such as
gears, a hard structure is desired in the surface layers, backed by a tough
structure in the interior. The first step in the process is to diffuse carbon into the
surface of a ...
A new surface has to be formed, so we need something like the energy required
to blow a soap bubble against surface- tension effects. The energy required to
create a new surface for the sphere is equal to the surface area times the surface
