Engineering Materials 1, Fifth Edition: An Introduction to Properties, Applications and Design provides a broad introduction to the mechanical, environmental and thermal properties of materials used in a wide range of engineering applications. The style 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 design. Each group concludes with case studies that demonstrate practical engineering problems involving the properties covered.
This fifth edition has expanded properties coverage, many new case studies and worked examples, and many more exercises - including model solutions to more complex exercises, and outline solutions to many others. 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.
. New chapters on thermal properties, with case studies and worked examples on their applications . A new chapter on the basics of elastic deformation, including beam bending, buckling and vibrations, plus a brief introduction to tensor notation for stress and strain in three dimensions . More and improved photographs, many new case studies and worked examples, and 50% more exercises than in the previous edition . Model solutions to more complex exercises, and outline solutions to many others, to make all exercises equally "solvable", and help self-directed study . New worked examples on the use of "English" units of measurement, and converting between these and SI (metric) units

Dr. Jones is co-author of Engineering Materials 1 and 2 and lead author for the 3rd and 4th editions. He was the founder editor of Elsevier's journal Engineering Failure Analysis, and founder chair of Elsevier's International Conference on Engineering Failure Analysis series. His research interests are in materials engineering, and along with serving as President of Christ's College at the University of Cambridge he now works internationally advising major companies and legal firms on failures of large steel structures.
