Introduction to Engineering Materials: Behavior, Properties, and Selection



This text includes the best of many worlds: a quality introduction to materials engineering and selection, and up-to-date comparisons of material properties. The theme of this book is comparative properties. The 13 chapters and many case studies are rooted in clear and concise presentations of four major classes of materials, i.e., metals, ceramics, polymers, and composites, followed by information on electronic materials and environmental degradation of materials. The chapter on “Comparative Properties” highlights the differences among the various materials and the book is capped with an excellent chapter on “Material Selection.”
