New materials enable advances in engineering design. This book describes a procedure for material selection in mechanical design, allowing the most suitable materials for a given application to be identified from the full range of materials and section shapes available. A novel approach is adopted not found anywhere else.
Materials are introduced through their properties; materials selection charts (a new development) capture the important features of all materials, allowing rapid retrieval of information and application of selection techniques. Merit indices, combined with charts, allow optimisation of the materials selection process. Sources of material property data are reviewed and approaches to their use are given. Material processing and its influence on the design are discussed. The book closes with chapters on aesthetics and industrial design. Case studies are developed as a method of illustrating the procedure and as a way of developing the ideas further.
This second edition is updated fully throughout with respect to materials developments and properties. There are new sections on materials selections aids, and new case studies are introduced where appropriate.

The leading text for materials selection in engineeringFrom the Back Cover:
Understanding materials, their properties and behavior is fundamental to engineering design, and a key application of materials science. Written for all students of engineering, materials science and design, this book describes the procedures for material selection in mechanical design in order to ensure that the most suitable materials for a given application are identified from the full range of materials available.
Key Features include:
* Fully revised throughout, with new material on topics including process selection, material and shape selection, design of hybrid materials, environmental factors and industrial design
* Reader-friendly approach and attractive, easy to use two-color presentation
* Improved tutor resources with supporting online materials and Instructor's Manual
* Unique material selection charts available to download online
* The methods developed in the book are implemented in Granta Design's CES Educational software
Revised and expanded for this third edition, Materials Selection in Mechanical Design is recognized as a key text for materials properties courses internationally, and provides a unique and genuinely innovative resource for students and practicing engineers.
Mike Ashby is Royal Society Research Professor at Cambridge University and a Visiting Professor of Design at the Royal College of Art, London, UK.
