Overview

'Materials for Engineering' will enable students to gain a clear understanding of
• the properties and testing of materials
• the relationship of the properties and microstructure of the materials
• the recognition of how properties can change under modifications in composition, structure and processing
• the selection of materials for particular applications
• a sound knowledge of the requirements for safe procedures

A clear accessible text is supported by learning summaries, numerous examples, and plenty of practice questions (answers supplied). The level is suitable for a wide range of pre-degree courses including Advanced GNVQ and BTEC National.
