Overview

The chapters are arranged in groups, each group describing a particular class of properties: the Elastic Moduli; the Fracture Toughness; Resistance to Corrosion; and so forth. Each group of chapters starts by defining the property, describing how it is measured, and providing a table of data for solving problems involving the selection and use of materials. Then the basic science underlying each property is examined to provide the knowledge with which to design materials with better properties. Each chapter group ends with a case study of practical application and each chapter ends with a list of books for further reading. To further aid the student, there are sets of examples (with answers) at the end of the book intended to consolidate or develop a particular point covered in the text. There is also a list of useful aids and demonstrations (including how to prepare them) in order to facilitate teaching of the material.

Booknews
A textbook for engineering students with no previous background in materials. Emphasizes applications and links with design, mechanics, and structures. Each of the 27 chapters is designed to be a 50-minute lecture. Occasional blocks of worked case studies apply the material of the last few lectures. Reprinted with minor corrections from the 1980 edition. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
