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.

4.2 Phase diagrams for polyphase alloys Up to this point we have discussed only
the simple but important case of single- phase alloys. In these, all the grains in
the metal have the same crystal structure, the same analysis, and the same ...
The success of the present design is related to the use in the ribs of high-
strength aluminum alloy 6061-T6, discussed in this chapter, and the high-
strength polymer fibers described in Chapter 10. In this chapter we will use the
concepts of ...
which will be discussed in Chapter 15. Magnetite, FeFe2O4, or lodestone is a
naturally occurring spinel. Barium Titanate BaTiO3 has the perovskite structure
discussed earlier (Fig. 7.20) with barium instead of calcium. Its electrical uses ...
