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.

One method requires drying the concrete at 500-600°F (260-315°C) with heaters,
pressure impregnation with a monomer such as methylmethacrylate, and finally
polymerization by hot water or steam. Depths of impregnation of up to 4 in.
Post-tensioning Pulling steel in tension after the concrete that is cast around it
has cured, then anchoring the steel to the concrete before removing the load.
When the load on the steel is removed, the concrete develops residual
