Building on the extraordinary success of five best-selling editions, Bill Callister's new Seventh Edition of MATERIALS SCIENCE AND ENGINEERING: AN INTRODUCTION continues to promote student understanding through clear and concise writing and familiar terminology that is 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 can teach from this user-friendly text.
The text treats the important properties of the three primary types of materials (metals, ceramics, and polymers) and composites, as well as the relationships that exist between the structural elements of materials and their properties. Throughout, the emphasis is on mechanical behavior and failure, including techniques that are employed to improve performance. Individual chapters discuss corrosion, electrical, thermal, magnetic, and optical properties, as well as new and cutting-edge materials.
For Sophmore-Senior level Materials Science/Engineering courses in the Chemical, Mechanical, and Materials Science/Engineering Departments.
