About this title


Written by a 31-year veteran of the field, this is a practical, clear introduction to engineering materials theory and industry-standard selection practices. It 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 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. This edition includes a chapter on surface engineering; covers techniques for specifying a wide variety of surface treatments, including organic and high-energy coatings, diamond and diamond-like carbon coatings, hardfacing and thermal sprays; and has an enhanced international focus.

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.

Changes to this edition include:

  • A new chapter combining corrosion, the prevention of mechanical failures, and new coverage of tribology (the study of friction, wear, bearings, and lubrication).
  • ASTM standard listings on materials and tests, recognizing the increasingly international nature of business.
  • New case histories at the end of each chapter illustrating real-life problems the authors encountered in their work in a corporate materials engineering laboratory.
