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.

The components are the materials at the endpoints of the phase diagram, such
as aluminum and silicon in the diagrams just discussed. However, one or both
can be a compound, such as Fe and Fe3C.) The number "2" in the equation
refers to ...
2. Instead of temperature, let us fix the phase composition of a in equilibrium with
L. This fixes temperature and the composition of the L phase, again by the tie line
relationship. Suppose an investigator reports a field where a, /}, and L are ...
Two-phase material A material in which two different phases are present and
grains or crystals of two different materials, with different unit cells for example,
can be found. Polyphase material A material in which two or more phases are
