Engineering Materials 1, Fifth Edition: An Introduction to Properties, Applications and Design 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, with each group covering property definitions, measurement, underlying principles, and materials selection techniques. Each group concludes with case studies that demonstrate practical engineering problems involving covered materials.
This fifth edition boasts expanded properties coverage, new case studies, more exercises and examples, and an improved pedagogy. It is perfect as a standalone text for a one-semester course in engineering materials, or as a first text with its companion Engineering Materials 2: An Introduction to Microstructures and Processing, in a two-semester course or sequence.
- Covers new chapters on magnetic, optical, thermal and electrical properties, with appropriate case studies on their applications
- Presents an improved pedagogy, featuring more relevant photographs, a new glossary of terms, additional worked examples, and 50% more exercises than in the previous edition
- Provides additional discussions on supply and demand
- Includes new case studies on medical materials/biomaterials
