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.

Activation polarization also occurs at the anode. This is the barrier the metal atom
or ion encounters in leaving the metal specimen and entering the solution. This
value is larger for the transition metals iron, cobalt, nickel, and chromium than it ...
A material that passivates exhibits the anode polarization curve shown in Fig.
12.8. As the anode is driven to higher current densities (generally by exposure to
an oxidizing acid), it reaches a maximum value called icri,icai- On reaching this ...
