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.

The modulus of elasticity is used to calculate the deflection of a given part under
load. For example, a crankshaft will bend a certain amount between bearings,
and clearance must be allowed for this. Also, a material may not be substituted
EXAMPLE 9.9 [ES] Why is it usual for a thermoplastic to have a higher modulus of
elasticity than an elastomer (rubber)? ANSWER The modulus of elasticity is
defined as the load divided by the strain within the "elastic region." In rubbers a ...
