Book Description

This updated Seventh Edition of THE SCIENCE AND ENGINEERING OF MATERIALS helps you to develop an understanding of the relationship between structure, processing, and properties of materials. Because the book has more material than is needed for a one-semester course, you will also have a useful reference for subsequent courses in manufacturing, materials, design, or materials selection. The Askeland text emphasizes a science-based approach to materials engineering that highlights how the structure of materials at various length scales gives rise to materials properties. This connection between structure and properties is key to innovating with materials, both in the synthesis of new materials and enabling new applications with existing materials. The science-based approach highlights how materials change with time and due to loading and environment - a key concept that is often overlooked when using charts and databases to select materials.

About the Author
Donald R. Askeland joined the University of Missouri-Rolla (now the Missouri University of Science and Technology) 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.

Wendelin Wright is an associate professor at Bucknell University with a joint appointment in the departments of Mechanical Engineering and Chemical Engineering. She received her B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. (2003) in Materials Science and Engineering from Stanford University. Following graduation, she served a post-doctoral term at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in the Manufacturing and Materials Engineering Division and then returned to Stanford as an Acting Assistant Professor in 2005. She joined the Santa Clara University faculty as a tenure-track assistant professor and assumed her position at Bucknell in the fall of 2010. Professor Wright's research interests focus on the mechanical behavior of materials, particularly of metallic glasses. She is the recipient of the 2003 Walter J. Gores Award for Excellence in Teaching, which is Stanford University's highest teaching honor, a 2005 Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers, and a 2010 National Science Foundation CAREER Award. Professor Wright is a licensed professional engineer in metallurgy in California.

3Rent don't buy
By BigChicken
Definitely not worth the "buy" price. This was a mandatory book that I rented and felt like it could have been a much better book for the price. it doesn't go into depth about a lot of stuff, it gives an overview which I didn't mind.
