An Introduction to Materials Engineering and Science for Chemical and Materials Engineers provides a solid background in materials engineering and science for chemical and materials engineering students. This book:* Organizes topics on two levels; by engineering subject area and by materials class.* Incorporates instructional objectives, active-learning principles, design-oriented problems, and web-based information and visualization to provide a unique educational experience for the student.* Provides a foundation for understanding the structure and properties of materials such as ceramics/glass, polymers, composites, bio-materials, as well as metals and alloys.* Takes an integrated approach to the subject, rather than a "metals first" approach.

Review:

..".the author has done an outstanding effort tin collectingthe vast information on materials and presenting it in a readableform." (Materials and Manufacturing Process, January 2007)

"Mitchell's book has achieved a new level and range ofinformation and deserves serious consideration as a backing textfor undergraduate MSE courses..." (MRS Bulletin, March2005)

..".this book offers a solid foundation in materialsengineering and science." (Chemical EngineeringProgress, October 2004)

..".corrosion professionals are most likely to benefit fromthis book if they need descriptions of the characteristics ofmaterials with which they are not already familiar."(Corrosion, October 2004)

..".I heartily recommend this book, primarily because of theunified presentation of topics across the materials classes. All ofthe important topics in an introductory materials science class arepresented well, and covered by problems." (AICHe Journal, October 2004)

..".the first of what will be a new generation ofintroductory texts that treat all classes of materials...willappeal to students and instructors who desire a broader picture ofmaterials science and engineering than is available source: otherintroductory texts..." (JOM, May 6, 2004)

..".very well written, illustrated, bound, andpresented...and excellent acquisition...highlyrecommended..." (Choice, Vol. 41, No. 9, May 2004)

"Overall the text is a worthy addition to the extensive list ofMSE textbooks and should be examined as a potential required textfor introductory courses." (Journal of Materials Education,2003)

From the Back Cover:

A solid background in materials engineering and science

An understanding of chemical structure and engineeringfundamentals leads to further understanding the properties andapplications of engineering materials, forming the core knowledgefor the future chemical or materials engineer. This knowledge isplaying an increasing role in fields such as biomedical orelectrical engineering. Therefore, today's introductory materialsscience course must provide a solid traditional foundation thatwill help engineers understand and evaluate emerging topics in thisrapidly evolving area.

An Introduction to Materials Engineering and Science forChemical and Materials Engineers is organized by bothengineering subject area and materials class to give instructorsversatility in structuring and presenting their courses. Detailedsections on metals and ceramics contain all the contents of astandard course. More advanced topics-found in sections onpolymers, composites, and biomaterials-also receive ample andequivalent coverage. All topics are presented from the standpointof fundamental engineering concepts of thermodynamics, kinetics, and transport phenomena. Additional engineering topics of materialsprocessing and materials selection and design provide importantpractical instruction for tomorrow's materials engineers.

Ideal for either a one- or two-semester undergraduate course, AnIntroduction to Materials Engineering and Science for Chemical andMaterials Engineers provides a unique educational tool for thestudent. Resources for learning include:

  • Cooperative learning exercises with example problems gearedtowards active learning principles
  • Instructional objectives to assist both students and teachersin determining the extent and depth of understanding required foreach topic, and to assist in course assessment for accreditationpurposes
  • Detailed case studies in materials selection, application, anddesign
  • End-of-chapter references for supplemental reading
  • Links to Web-based information and graphics
  • Extensive materials property data

Students and teachers of chemical or materials engineering, aswell as those of biomedical, mechanical, electrical, or civilengineering, will all find this book an invaluable resource forestablishing a solid understanding of the field.
