Materials Science and Engineering : an Introduction (8TH 10 - Old Edition) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Building on the success of previous editions, this book continues to provide engineers with a strong understanding of the three primary types of materials and composites, as well as the relationships that exist between the structural elements of materials and their properties. The relationships among processing, structure, properties, and performance components for steels, glass-ceramics, polymer fibers, and silicon semiconductors are explored throughout the chapters. The discussion of the construction of crystallographic directions in hexagonal unit cells is expanded. At the end of each chapter, engineers will also find revised summaries and new equation summaries to reexamine key concepts.

Book News Annotation:

The textbook sets out the basic fundamentals of the field for students who have completed freshman-level calculus, chemistry, and physics. Among the goals is to establish a groundwork for further study, with terminology, concepts, methods, and philosophy. Revised from the 2007 edition, this one adds new sections on diffusion in semiconductors, flash memory, and biodegradable and biorenewable polymers and plastics. Much of the rest of the material has also been updated, along with pedagogical elements and instructor's tools. Among the topics are atomic structure and interatomic bonding, dislocating and strengthening mechanism, applications and processing of ceramics, and optical properties. The four editions before 2000 are not listed, presumably having been published by someone else. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
