Bill Callister continues his dedication to student understanding by writing in a clear and concise manner, using terminology that is familiar and not beyond student comprehension. Topics are organized and explained in an approachable manner, so that even instructors who do not have a strong materials background (i.e., those from mechanical, civil, chemical, or electrical engineering, or chemistry departments) can teach from this, already successful, text.

The latest edition of this bestselling textbook treats the important properties of three primary types of material--metals, ceramics, polymers--as well as composites. Describes the relationships that exist between the structural elements of these materials and their characteristics. Emphasizes mechanical behavior and failure along with techniques used to improve the mechanical and failure properties in terms of alteration of structural elements. Individual chapters discuss each of the corrosion, electrical, thermal, magnetic, and optical properties plus economic, environmental, and societal issues. Features a design component which includes design examples, case studies, and design type problems and questions.From the Back Cover:
The leading source for learning materials science and engineering
