Provides comprehensive treatment of the mechanical behavior of materials within a balanced mechanics-materials approach. Covering a range of materials, including metals, polymers, ceramics, and composites, this book presents the properties of materials while addressing the principal ideas behind theories of mechanical behavior. It includes broad treatment of flow and fracture criteria. It presents various mechanisms for tailoring the strength and toughness of materials. It also provides references and a list of suggested readings in each chapter. A valuable reference book on the mechanical behavior of materials for all practicing Mechanical and Materials Engineers.
