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.

H (b) that in a simple water molecule the hydrogen atoms are connected to the
oxygen by bonds at an angle of 109°. This gives a positive polarity at the
hydrogen-rich end of the molecule and a negative polarity at the other end (Fig.
molecules rises. There are both van der Waals forces between molecules and
mechanical entanglements between chains. In view of these properties of the
large molecules, let us continue with our study of the carbon backbone of the ...
There would be considerably more intertwining than with worms, because if we
scaled up the typical polymer molecule to a diameter of 0.25 in. (0.635 cm), it
would be 20-ft (6.1-m) long! We can continue our analogy a little further. We know
