Supplemental Materials

What is included with this book?


Materials Science and Engineering: An Introduction promotes student understanding of the three primary types of materials (metals, ceramics, and polymers) and composites, as well as the relationships that exist between the structural elements of materials and their properties. The 10th edition provides new or updated coverage on a number of topics, including: the Materials Paradigm and Materials Selection Charts, 3D printing and additive manufacturing, biomaterials, recycling issues and the Hall effect.
