Overview

"It is a human characteristic to wish to make things - to take materials and to shape, join and finish them, creating products. And, from the earliest flint knives to the most recent examples of consumer electronics, the form is chosen not only to provide the function but also to create the aesthetics and associations - the perception - of the product. Materials play a central role in this. Their selection to provide technical function is well studied and methods and software tools to achieve it are established and widely available. Their selection to create the aesthetics and associations - the ways in which the product is seen, how it feels and sounds, how it is perceived - is less easy to analyze, yet in today's competitive market, it is as essential a part of successful design as the functionality itself." This book explores the role of materials and processes in product design, with emphasis on the ways in which they can be used to create the aesthetics and associations of the product, and the ways in which it is perceived. The methods are supported by some 100 profiles of materials and processes, emphasizing the attributes most relevant for product design.

Audience: Undergraduate and recent graduate students in Industrial and Product Design, Materials Science and Engineering, as well as professors and curriculum development specialists in these areas. Materials Engineers held about 33,000 jobs last year. Because materials are building blocks for other goods, materials engineers are widely distributed among manufacturing industries.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
From the first edition:

"...well-written and easy-to-read...unique and a worthwhile reference for designers, engineers, and suppliers." - Adhesives & Sealants Newsletter, 2006

"Well presented, easy to read with concise descriptions. Very suitable for students on courses which involve art design and the use of modern materials" - Derrick Parker, Univ. of Portsmouth, Dept. Mech. & Manufacturing Eng

"I believe materials engineering faculty should use this book at some point in their materials engineering curriculum. It can then be a resource for students as they travel through the major. The same can be said in an ideal world for industrial engineering, industrial design, and maybe even mechanical engineering."--Blair London, Cal Poly San Luis Obispo

"I don't know of any similar book. I used Ashby & Jones's Engineering Materials I & II for many years, but these are more technical and probably better as stand-alone texts for an engineering course. I think Materials & Design would be an excellent supplement to an Engineering Materials course, and could serve as the primary text in Industrial or Product Design course focusing on materials."--Gary Benenson, City College of New York
