Engineering Materials: Properties and Selection

9780131227316: Engineering Materials: Properties and Selection

For courses in Metallurgy and Materials Science.

Co-authored by Kenneth G. Budinski and Michael K. Budinski, his son, with over 50 years of combined industry experience in the field, this practical, understandable introduction to engineering materials theory and industry-standard selection practices provides students with the working knowledge to (1) make an informed selection of materials for engineering applications and (2) correctly specify materials on drawings and purchasing documents. Encompassing all significant material systems—metals, ceramics, plastics, and composites—this text incorporates the most up-to-date information on material usage and availability, addresses the increasingly global nature of the field, and reflects the suggestions of numerous adopters of previous editions.

From the Back Cover:

Authored by a father-and-son team with over 50 years of combined industry experience, the seventh edition of Engineering Materials: Properties and Selection is intended for students who will take only one materials course in their formal schooling and for materials and selections courses for advanced students. The authors' coverage of all important engineering materials, presentation of the fundamentals of every materials system, and provision of enough property information to allow reasonable material selection in most industries make this volume a useful reference that experienced industry professionals can pull from the shelf.

Changes to this edition include:

  • A new chapter combining corrosion, the prevention of mechanical failures, and new coverage of tribology (the study of friction, wear, bearings, and lubrication).
  • ASTM standard listings on materials and tests, recognizing the increasingly international nature of business.
  • New case histories at the end of each chapter illustrating real-life problems the authors encountered in their work in a corporate materials engineering laboratory.
