Synopses & Reviews
Widely adopted around the world, Engineering Materials 1 is a core materials science and engineering text for third- and fourth-year undergraduate students; it provides a broad introduction to the mechanical and environmental properties of materials used in a wide range of engineering applications. The text is deliberately concise, with each chapter designed to cover the content of one lecture. As in previous editions, chapters are arranged in groups dealing with particular classes of properties, each group covering property definitions, measurement, underlying principles, and materials selection techniques. Every group concludes with a chapter of case studies that demonstrate practical engineering problems involving materials.
Engineering Materials 1, Fourth Edition is perfect as a stand-alone text for a one-semester course in engineering materials or a first text with its companion Engineering Materials 2: An Introduction to Microstructures and Processing, in a two-semester course or sequence.
New and Key Features Include:
Many new design case studies and design-based examplesRevised and expanded treatments of stress-strain, fatigue, creep, and corrosionAdditional worked examples-to consolidate, develop, and challengeCompendia of results for elastic beams, plastic moments, and stress intensity factorsMany new photographs and links to Google Earth, websites, and video clipsAccompanying companion site with access to instructors resources, including a suite of interactive materials science tutorials, a solutions manual, and an image bank of figures from the book
Widely adopted around the world, this is a core materials science and mechanical engineering text. Engineering Materials 1 gives a broad introduction to the properties of materials used in engineering applications. With each chapter corresponding to one lecture, it provides a complete introductory course in engineering materials for students with no previous background in the subject. Ashby & Jones have an established, successful track record in developing understanding of the properties of materials and how they perform in reality.
* One of the best-selling materials properties texts; well known, well established and well liked
* New student friendly format, with enhanced pedagogy including many more case studies, worked examples, student questions, full instructor's manual and online tutorial material for adopting tutors
* World-renowned author team
