By Mike Tooley BA; Advanced Technological and Higher National Certificates Kingston University

Engineering a degree covers all of the obligatory AS and A2 devices from Edexcel in a committed bankruptcy. complete insurance is given to the 3 devices required at AS point, and the three extra A2 devices required for of completion of the a degree award. scholars following the GCE classes will locate this publication crucial interpreting, because it covers all of the fabric they are going to be following during the length in their examine. Knowledge-check questions and actions are integrated all through, besides studying summaries, leading edge 'Another View' positive factors, and utilized maths built-in along the best components of engineering examine. All examples relate without delay (and completely) to engineering perform, to stress software of conception in real-world engineering contexts. the result's a transparent, user-friendly and simply obtainable textual content. The e-book deals a precious perception into a variety of components of engineering know-how and comparable industries, offering a possible springboard to additional education, eventual development to skills inside of greater schooling, or to acceptable employment in the engineering area. A better half web site deals numerous pupil assets offering sensible assignments to complement the cloth within the textbook, together with utilizing CAD / CAM, desktop modelling (using spreadsheets), and Visio templates, shapes and logos on hand for obtain. Mike Tooley is previously Director of studying at Brooklands university, Surrey, and is the writer of many best-selling engineering and electronics books. * bankruptcy by way of bankruptcy assurance of the obligatory AS and A2 devices of the 2005 Edexcel GCE syllabus * Case reviews, actions, overview questions incorporated all through - maximises accessibility of the textual content, places crucial thought into sensible engineering contexts * Supported through unfastened on-line student assets and a Curriculum aid Pack in the stores

Example text

The above equation is often referred to as an equation of mixtures, it has many uses particularly in the study of composite materials. 17 What properties must dielectric materials have? Name a typical dielectric material. A small engineering company, Thames Magnetic Components, has commissioned you to carry out some research into materials suitable for use in the cores of a new range of large industrial transformers that they intend to manufacture. They have asked you to summarize the essential electromagnetic properties of a suitable core 38 Engineering materials, processes and techniques material and explain how these properties differ from those used in the range of permanent magnets that make up their current product range.

The most generally useful electric property of nonmetals is their high electrical resistance. Probably, the most common applications of ceramics, apart from their structural uses, depend upon their insulating properties. Breakdown of electrical insulators occurs either along the surface or through the body of the insulator. Surface breakdown is promoted by moisture and other surface contaminants. Water absorption can be minimized by applying a glaze to the surface of a ceramic. Volume breakdown occurs at voltages high enough to accelerate individual free electrons to energies that will break the bonds holding the atoms of the material together, this causes a large number of electrons to break free at once and become charge carriers.

The term stress is used for the force per unit area. e. 1 Pa = 1 N/m2. Note that, in materials science, it is perhaps more convenient to measure stress in terms of Newtons per square millimetre (N/mm2). This unit, moreover, produces a value that is easier to appreciate, whereas the force necessary to break (for example) a steel bar one square metre in cross-section is so large as to be difficult to visualize in ordinary measurable terms. The Greek letter (sigma ) is often used to indicate stress.
