For undergraduate courses in Materials Science and Metallurgy.

This practical introduction to engineering materials/metallurgy maintains a low mathematical level designed for two-year technical programs and four-year engineering technology programs. The easy-to-read, highly-accessible Sixth Edition includes many of the latest industry processes that change the physical and mechanical properties of materials and is highly recommended as a "materials processing" reference handbook in support of Design, Process, Electrical and Chemical technicians and engineers. Math theory is minimized and the appreciation of theory is emphasized.
