9780470505861: Materials Science and Engineering

Building on the success of previous editions, this book continues to provide engineers with a strong understanding of the three primary types of materials and composites, as well as the relationships that exist between the structural elements of materials and their properties. The relationships among processing, structure, properties, and performance components for steels, glass-ceramics, polymer fibers, and silicon semiconductors are explored throughout the chapters. The discussion of the construction of crystallographic directions in hexagonal unit cells is expanded. At the end of each chapter, engineers will also find revised summaries and new equation summaries to reexamine key concepts.

From the Publisher:

An outstanding text reflecting the latest developments in the field. This edition contains a new chapter titled Case Studies in Materials Selection which includes five different examples--a cantilever beam, an automobile valve spring, the artificial hip, the space shuttle's thermal protection system and packaging for integrated circuits--relative to materials employed and the rationale behind their use. These case studies are comprehensive in coverage and feature numerous engineering disciplines. New material on novel diamond thin films and the recently discovered carbon fullerenes plus a discussion of the Hall effect have been added.

From the Back Cover:

The leading source for learning materials science and engineering

Bill Callister’s text is the number one choice for learning materials science and engineering. Why?  Because it delivers lucid explanations, thorough and up-to-date coverage, and outstanding art and learning resources. Now revised, this 7th Edition continues to promote student understanding of the three primary types of materials (metals, ceramics, and polymers) and composites, as well as the relationships between the structural elements of materials and their properties.

New to the Seventh Edition

  • A number of new “Materials of Importance” pieces (for most chapters).
  • Concept Check questions throughout.
  • Revised illustrations, now all in full-color to enhance visualization and convey realism.
  • Expanded discussions on material types and general properties of materials (Chapter 1), and crystallographic directions and planes in hexagonal crystals (Chapter 3).
  • New discussions on one-component (pressure-temperature) phase diagrams, compacted graphite iron, lost foam casting, fractography of ceramics, and magnetic anisotropy.
  • Enhanced discussions on representations of polymer structures and defects in polymers, and a new discussion on permeability in polymers.
  • Revised coverage of deformation of semicrystalline polymers and polymerization.

Online Animations and Learning Modules

The book companion site (www.wiley.com/college/callister) features learning modules with animations and 3-D projections that help students visualize challenging concepts and processes.  The website also includes an interactive database of materials properties and costs.
