9780080419077: Materials Selection in Mechanical Design in Two Parts (Text & Charts)

New materials enable advances in engineering design. This book describes a procedure for the selection of materials in mechanical design, allowing the most suitable materials for a given application to be identified from the full range of materials and section shapes available. The approach is novel, emphasising design with materials rather than materials "science". The materials are introduced through their properties and materials selection charts highlight the important features of all materials, aiding materials and process selection. With case studies and a list of further reading at the end of each chapter, this book makes both an ideal text for final year undergraduates studying "Materials for Design" courses, as well as a reference text of lasting value.
