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.

12.27 Scale-resistant materials Scale-resistant materials are most needed at
temperatures from 800-2000°F (427-1093°C). Iron, nickel, and cobalt oxidize
appreciably above 1000°F (538°C). The addition of chromium, silicon, and
aluminum to ...
Molybdenum disulfide and graphite are also used in the bearing area where
extreme pressure exists, to serve as solid fragments with easy basal cleavage.

Rectification The conversion of alternating to direct current. Resistance R = E/ I,
where E is the voltage and I the current. The resistance of a conductor to the
passage of a current increases with length and decreases with increasing cross ...
