Industrial Materials provides basic coverage of the five major types of industrial materialsmetals and their alloys, plastics, ceramics, wood and engineered wood products, and composites. The text first presents a general overview of material composition, molecular structure, and mechanical and physical properties of materials. The five major types of industrial materials are then covered in a clear, easy-to-read format. The text concludes with an introduction to material standards. Destructive and nondestructive testing of materials are also presented in an overview format. This text is suitable for an advanced high school and introductory community college/university level materials technology curriculum.
