Customer Reviews

Great book  April 28, 2011
by


The textbook contains all the information you need to know on materials. Information is provided in a well-organized format that readers will understand the materials structure, processing and property relationships. Since the textbook has more material than is needed for a one-semester course, students will also have a useful reference for subsequent courses in manufacturing, materials, design, or materials selection. I rate the seller 5 stars and I plan to buy from ecampus again in the future.






The Science and Engineering of Materials: 5 out of 5 stars based on 1 user reviews.

Summary

This text provides an understanding of the relationship between structure, processing, and properties of materials. By selecting the appropriate topics from this wealth of material, instructors can emphasize materials, provide a general overview, concentrate on mechanical behavior, or focus on physical properties.

Since the book has more material than is needed for a one-semester course, students will also have a useful reference for subsequent courses in manufacturing, materials, design, or materials selection.

Features:

-Chapter Openings and Introductions introduce the student to relevant topics and ideas covered in that chapter.

-Have You Ever Wondered? questions designed to pique the interest of the reader relate the material covered in the chapter to its real world application.

-Considerably more focused on core Materials Science.

-Includes end-of-chapter design problems and chapter summaries.

-A glossary of key words and definitions can be found at the end of each chapter.
