An outstanding book that provides complete coverage and reflects the latest developments in the field of materials science. The fifth edition maintains its extensive coverage of mechanical properties and failure and offers a new discussion of how the stress state within the body is a function of the orientation of the plane upon which the stresses are taken to act. The accompanying software is updated to include Material Properties and Cost Databases, also found in Appendix B and C of the book. An expanded feature in the software is an equation solver, E-Z Solve, which will help facilitate the solution of mathematically complex problems.
New edition of a text presenting the fundamentals of materials science and engineering on a level appropriate for university/college students who have completed their freshmen calculus, chemistry, and physics courses. Material progresses from the simple to the more complex, and each topic is discussed in enough detail that students need not consult other sources to understand it.

A revised and updated (2nd ed., 1991) introductory textbook presenting the basic fundamentals of materials science and engineering at a level appropriate for college/university students who have completed their freshman calculus, chemistry, and physics courses. The most significant change in the present edition is the addition of a new chapter, Case Studies in Materials Selection, which includes five different case studies (a cantilever beam, an automobile valve spring, the artificial hip, the thermal protection system for the Space Shuttle, and packaging for integrated circuits) relative to the materials employed and the rationale behind their use.
