For courses in Metallurgy, Materials Science, and Materials Testing in two- and four-year technology programs. Clearly written and with a practical, problem-solving approach, this introduction to the characteristics and testing of materials effectively combines the background students need in principles and theory with plenty of applications, to provide a solid understanding of the materials used in today's machines, devices, structures, and consumer products. Straightforward, non-mathematical coverage is aimed at answering the qwhyq and qhowq questions of materials science and materials testing as they relate to all types of materials--concrete, wood, metals, and polymers--and is geared to helping students build a foundation from which they can learn to design and develop additional materials and conduct materials testing procedures on their own.(ETP) copper. Phosphorus (approximately 0.02%) is sometimes added to the melt to control the amount of oxygen in the copper. ... As shown in the copper- zinc phase diagram, up to 36% zinc may dissolve into copper in a single-phase state.
