Materials Processing and Manufacturing Scienceby Rajiv Asthana
Synopses & Reviews
Materials Science in Manufacturing focuses on materials science and materials processing primarily for engineering and technology students preparing for careers in manufacturing. The text also serves as a useful reference on materials science for the practitioner engaged in manufacturing as well as the beginning graduate student.
Knowledge about the properties and behavior of different classes of materials is of central importance to the manufacturing enterprise. The book integrates theoretical understanding and current practices to provide a resource that will be of value to students preparing for career in industry. Additionally, the book also serves as a useful resource to the practitioner who works with diverse materials and processes, but is not a specialist in materials science.
This book covers a wider range of materials and processes than is customary in the elementary materials science books.
Detailed explanations of theories, concepts, principles and practices of materials in manufacturing through richly illustrated text.
Includes new topics including: thin films, semiconductors, and superconducting materials, not covered in most similar works.
Includes step-by-step solutions to end-of-chapter problems
