For courses in Materials Technology, Materials and Processes Technology, Materials Science and Technology, Industrial Materials, Composites and Ceramics, Non-Metallic Materials and Building Materials.
Emphasizing basic concepts—supported by current and cutting-edge industrial practices and applications—this exceptionally readable text/reference on engineering materials is designed to help students develop problem-solving abilities in such areas as materials evaluation and selection, materials processes selection, failure analysis, and materials testing. It focuses on materials in the systems context, and prepares students to work with current engineering materials as well as with new and/or improved technologies that influence many aspects of engineering materials technology. Over 350 Experiments and Demonstrations from the National Educators' Workshops are referenced throughout. This book has also been successful in interdisciplinary Material Science, Technology and Society courses for non-technical students.

This book's unique design includes numerous features for a sound and proven approach to learning about modern materials science and technology. Interesting case studies, applications, and illustrations, with many sample problems and activities, have been provided to facilitate the learning process. Eight pages of color photos, photo micrographs, and illustrations highlight many of the concepts presented in this text.
Life Cycle Analysis of products and systems has become an industry imperative in recognition of the need for green design and manufacturing for a sustainable environment. This edition effectively weaves in Life Cycle Analysis as related to the total Materials Cycle now being adopted on a global scale.
The book's extensive index and handy tables qualify it as a useful "ready reference," on the job or elsewhere.
You will learn about engineering materials and many associated topics through an integrated approach centering around innovative trends in design and manufacturing that often focus on environmentally friendly processes and products. Special strategies and clear explanations clarify the relationships among the following major facets of materials technology:
STRUCTURES must be understood to grasp the values and limitations of materials. Materials engineering has developed many approaches to changing structures. An understanding of micro and macro structures leads to knowledge of the new "designed" structures of our advanced materials, which result from many new methods of synthesis and processing.
PROCESSING is studied in terms of how raw materials determine certain processes and how processing changes structure through both traditional and emerging new methods. Effective diagrams, photomicrographs, and photographs promote comprehension of many processes.
PROPERTIES are now controlled better as a result of the many new processes presented in this book. You will learn how designers specify a material's properties for designed materials rather than being limited to off-the-shelf materials. With these selections, designers can meet the demands of our advanced technological society.
SELECTION from the ever-increasing variety of materials requires efficient problem-solving skills as taught in this book. The tables, graphs, and numerous interesting and unusual applications will aid you in learning effective materials selection and consumption of the world's limited material resources.
