Bill Callister continues his dedication to student understanding by writing in a clear and concise manner, using terminology that is familiar and not beyond student comprehension. Topics are organized and explained in an approachable manner, so that even instructors who do not have a strong materials background (i.e., those from mechanical, civil, chemical, or electrical engineering, or chemistry departments) can teach from this, already successful, text.

From the Publisher:

The latest edition of this bestselling textbook treats the important properties of three primary types of material--metals, ceramics, polymers--as well as composites. Describes the relationships that exist between the structural elements of these materials and their characteristics. Emphasizes mechanical behavior and failure along with techniques used to improve the mechanical and failure properties in terms of alteration of structural elements. Individual chapters discuss each of the corrosion, electrical, thermal, magnetic, and optical properties plus economic, environmental, and societal issues. Features a design component which includes design examples, case studies, and design type problems and questions.

From the Back Cover:

The leading source for learning materials science and engineering

Bill Callister’s text is the number one choice for learning materials science and engineering. Why?  Because it delivers lucid explanations, thorough and up-to-date coverage, and outstanding art and learning resources. Now revised, this 7th Edition continues to promote student understanding of the three primary types of materials (metals, ceramics, and polymers) and composites, as well as the relationships between the structural elements of materials and their properties.

New to the Seventh Edition

  • A number of new “Materials of Importance” pieces (for most chapters).
  • Concept Check questions throughout.
  • Revised illustrations, now all in full-color to enhance visualization and convey realism.
  • Expanded discussions on material types and general properties of materials (Chapter 1), and crystallographic directions and planes in hexagonal crystals (Chapter 3).
  • New discussions on one-component (pressure-temperature) phase diagrams, compacted graphite iron, lost foam casting, fractography of ceramics, and magnetic anisotropy.
  • Enhanced discussions on representations of polymer structures and defects in polymers, and a new discussion on permeability in polymers.
  • Revised coverage of deformation of semicrystalline polymers and polymerization.

Online Animations and Learning Modules

The book companion site (www.wiley.com/college/callister) features learning modules with animations and 3-D projections that help students visualize challenging concepts and processes.  The website also includes an interactive database of materials properties and costs.
