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.

Furthermore, if we heat iron carbide for extended periods, it will decompose: iron
carbide -» iron + graphite. In other words, the true equilibrium diagram is the iron-
graphite system, which is superimposed on the iron iron carbide diagram in Fig.
°C or add silicon, which also promotes graphite formation. We obtain the fraction
chart shown in Fig. 6.46. The table below contrasts the formation of graphite in
gray cast iron with that of carbide in white cast iron of eutectic composition (4.3%
Therefore, a fracture test of cast iron will at least tell whether the high-carbon
phase is carbide or graphite. Ductile Iron Although gray iron is excellent for parts
such as engine blocks because the graphite flakes give good machinability, ...
