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.

Naturally we'll discuss each effect in detail where necessary. After describing
these structures and how they respond to stress, temperature, electrical potential,
and magnetic fields, we will be able not only to comprehend the specific

effect transistor) base, which is accomplished by making the base thin and
having a relatively long recombination time (a characteristic of the material).
