Book Description

Building on the success of previous editions, this book continues to provide engineers with a strong understanding of the three primary types of materials and composites, as well as the relationships that exist between the structural elements of materials and their properties. The relationships among processing, structure, properties, and performance components for steels, glass-ceramics, polymer fibers, and silicon semiconductors are explored throughout the chapters. The discussion of the construction of crystallographic directions in hexagonal unit cells is expanded. At the end of each chapter, engineers will also find revised summaries and new equation summaries to reexamine key concepts.

5I can't believe I'm rating a textbook positively.
By dwagner
Most engineering books I've come across I can't read due to not knowing the engineering terms they expect you to know beforehand.This is the only book I've actually read and understood in engineering. It explains things well and doesn't use too much professional jargon that material science beginners would have to sort through.

Thankful for engineering books like this that actually help me learn and not make me feel lost!!

5Buy, don't rent.
By Liam
I got this book for my first materials class, and I find myself coming back to it again and again for other materials classes and other engineering courses in general. It is excellent at giving a good understanding on concepts and is very reader friendly. My favorite textbook I have ever used.
