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.

5.12 Zinc alloys The principal use of zinc in structures is for die castings. These
zinc alloys are ideally suited for the process because of the low melting point and
lack of corrosion of steel crucibles or dies. As a result, a number of automotive ...
Furthermore, the emf changes during this period. Such a decrease in corrosion
rate with time is caused by polarization and is very important to corrosion control.
As an example, consider the copper- zinc cell shown in Fig. 12.3a. The zinc will ...
Many less spectacular cases of galvanic action exist, and often the more reactive
member of the couple is deliberately used as a sacrificial anode. In the common
case of galvanized steel or wire, the steel is coated with zinc either by being ...
