  • Title:
    The essence of materials for engineers
  • Author: Robert W. Messler 1942-
  • Subjects: Materials; g Engineering design; Manufacturing processes
  • Description: Structure. Materials : building blocks for engineers -- The periodic table of elements : the key to understanding atomic bonding and types of materials -- Aggregation of atoms : the basis for solid materials -- Imperfections in solid crystalline materials : nature's better alternative than perfection -- Amorphous and semi crystalline materials -- Properties. Material properties : the response of a solid material's structure to a stimulus -- Mechanical properties of solids : a material's response to loads or forces -- Deformation versus fracture : different mechanical responses to stresses -- Electrical properties of solids : a material's response to an electromagnetic field -- Thermal properties of solids : a material's response to heat -- Processing. Using processing to improve the mechanical properties of solids : strengthening and toughening materials -- Alloy phase diagrams : maps of structure as functions of composition and temperature -- Heat induced transformations in materials : improving properties by controlled solidification, diffusion, or heat treatment -- Strain induced transformations in materials : improving properties by controlled deformation -- Composite materials : another level of the structure property process performance relationship -- Performance. Environmental degradation of materials : a cost to society -- The evolution of materials : solving problems and embarking on new frontiers -- Appendix A.1: List of selected elements and key facts -- Appendix A.2: Summary of seven possible crystal systems and fourteen possible Bravais lattices -- Appendix A.3: Convention for assigning Miller indices for hexagonal crystals -- Appendix B.1: Some key mechanical for some important engineering materials -- Appendix B.2: Hardness conversion table : approximate hardness equivalents among common hardness scales (including ultimate tensile strength, UTS) -- Appendix B.3: List of values of electrical conductivity and resistivity for some important engineering materials (at room temperature) -- Appendix B.4: Seebeck coefficients for various materials -- Appendix B.5: List of some important thermal properties for some important engineering materials.
