Written by a 31-year veteran of the field, this is a practical, understandable introduction to engineering materials theory and industry-standard selection practices...one which provides students with the working knowledge that will enable them to make an informed selection of materials for engineering applications and correctly specify materials on drawings and purchasing documents. Encompassing all of the important material systems -- metals, ceramics, plastics, and composites -- the new edition incorporates the most up-to-date information on materials usage and availability, addresses the increasingly global nature of the field, and reflects the suggestions of numerous adopters of previous editions.From the Back Cover:
Authored by a father-and-son team with over 50 years of combined industry experience, the seventh edition of Engineering Materials: Properties and Selection is intended for students who will take only one materials course in their formal schooling and for materials and selections courses for advanced students. The authors' coverage of all important engineering materials, presentation of the fundamentals of every materials system, and provision of enough property information to allow reasonable material selection in most industries make this volume a useful reference that experienced industry professionals can pull from the shelf.
