Engineering Materials Technology : Structures, Processing, Properties, and Selection
For courses in Materials Technology, Materials and Processes Technology, Materials Science and Technology, Industrial Materials, Composites and Ceramics, Non-Metallic Materials and Building Materials. The fifth edition of Engineering Materials Technology continues to cover basic concepts in materials science, engineering and technology dealing with traditional as well as advanced materials. This exceptionally readable text/reference on engineering materials is designed to help students develop problem-solving abilities in such areas as materials evaluation and selection, materials processes selection, failure analysis, and materials testing. Special strategies and clear explanations clarify the relationships among the major facets of materials science and technology including structure, processing, properties, and selection of the full range of materials. In addition to coverage of metals, polymers, ceramics and composites, the book offers introductions to emerging technologies such as micro/nano technology, environmentally friendly processes and products, smart and morphing materials and trends in surface science and engineering.
