This book presents the three-way relationship between structure, properties and processing of materials, providing students with an understanding of the behaviour of materials and how this behaviour can be controlled. The breadth of topical coverage includes not only the principles of material science and engineering, but also those of real-life materials; their advantages, applications and limitations. Material selection and processing is emphasized throughout and the differences and similarities between different classes of materials are discussed. This edition introduces up-to-date topics such as rapid solidification processing, toughening mechanisms in ceramics and photonic materials. Additional other topics discussed include the Arrhenius relationship, the unary phase diagram and dual phase steels. This book should be of interest to students on introductory degree and diploma courses in civil, mechanical, industrial, chemical and electrical engineering.

Donald R. Askeland joined the University of Missouri-Rolla in 1970 after obtaining his doctorate in Metallurgical Engineering from the University of Michigan. His primary interest has been in teaching, resulting in a variety of campus, university, and industry awards and the preparation of a materials engineering textbook. Dr. Askeland has also been active in research involving metals casting and metals joining, particularly in the production, treatment, and joining of cast irons, gating and fluidity of aluminum alloys, and optimization of casting processes. Additional work has concentrated on lost foam casting, permanent mold casting, and investment casting; much of this work has been interdisciplinary, providing data for creating computer models and validation of such models.
Pradeep P. Fulay received his Ph.D. from the University of Arizona and teaches at the University of Pittsburgh. His research is primarily concerned with the synthesis and processing of ceramic powders and thin films, consisting of nano-sized primary particles/grains. His current research involves development of novel synthesis and processing protocols for electro-optic and ferroelectric ceramics and studies related to the relationships between their microstructure and dielectric/optical properties. Dr. Fulay is also researching fundamental of magnetorheological (MR) fluids. He is a Fellow to the American Ceramic Society.
