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.

If we fuse pure silica (SiO2), on cooling it forms a glass called vitreous silica. This
glass is very useful for chemical glassware because it resists thermal shock. The
basic unit of the structure is the silica tetrahedron (Fig. 7.3), composed of a ...
7.11 Simple ceramic materials Silica and silicates are by far the most important
ceramic materials. Therefore, just as we gave iron a good deal of attention as a
base for many metallic materials, we should investigate silica carefully.
Since the clay-silica-feldspar combination is of such great importance in all these
products, the ternary phase diagram containing these constituents should be
reviewed briefly. Figure 8.9 is essentially a contour map showing the decrease in
