Provides an up-to-date introduction to the properties and applications of engineering materials for students with no previous knowledge of the subject. A wide range of materials is covered. Emphasis is placed on developing an understanding of the physical and mechanical properties of materials in the context of other subjects that the engineering student will encounter, particularly mechanics, structures and design. The economic considerations involved in the selection of materials are discussed in detail (prices quoted are those of February 1980). Detailed tables of materials data, in a uniform format, contain all the information necessary to enable the student to solve a wide range of preliminary design calculations. Also contains numerous problems, useful case studies and comprehensive lists of further reading. In SI units.

This book is concise without being oversimplified, and wide-ranging without attempting the impossible task of covering the whole subject... The whole book succeeds admirably at its intended level of a materials text for first-year engineers with no previous background in the subject.

...excellent introduction for engineering students with no previous background in materials...authors recognised experts in the field. Recommended for acquisition by college librarians.
Gopal S Reuankar, St Ambrose University, Davenport
This book is well-conceived and written...It is a good personal reference for those involved in educating young people.
Roy Diez, University of North London
A very nice book!
Professor A T Stewart, Department of Physics, Queens University, Canada
Excellent reference books. Used to generate lectures. Very practical approach.
Fred Hoppe, Kansas State University
High quality, well written, interesting and analytical...Good section on costs. Excellent case studies and phenomenology. Practical.
Edward L Widener, P.E., Purdue University
They are admirable books: the provision of 'Aids and Demonstrations' in Volume 1 to assist class teaching is extremely helpful. It is helpful to have answers for the problems.
Professor A G Atkins, Department of Engineering, The University of Reading
No one has realized the importance of studying natural materials more than Ashby - what a debt materials sciences owes to this outstanding scientist. His two textbooks written with Jones, Engineering Materials 1 and 2, are still amongst the best available.
