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 value for iron is 0.107 cal/g (0.448 J/g), whereas the value for lead is 0.031
cal/g (0.1296 J/g). 16.9 Thermal conductivity The carriers of thermal energy are
electrons in metals and phonons (quanta of energy) in other solids. The velocity
of a ...
16.10 Thermal expansion If we use a classical model of atom or ion vibrations
back and forth about fixed centers as a sample is heated, we cannot explain
expansion. However, let us review the attractive and repulsive forces between
two ions ...
The index of refraction increases with density. The thermal properties of major
importance are heat capacity, thermal conductivity, and thermal expansion. Heat
capacity is the energy required to raise the temperature of a system 1 K. It may be
