9780471436232: An Introduction to Materials Engineering and Science for Chemical and Materials Engineers (Chemistry)

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 engineering fundamentals leads to further understanding the properties and applications of engineering materials, forming the core knowledge for the future chemical or materials engineer. This knowledge is playing an increasing role in fields such as biomedical or electrical engineering. Therefore, today′s introductory materials science course must provide a solid traditional foundation that will help engineers understand and evaluate emerging topics in this rapidly evolving area.

An Introduction to Materials Engineering and Science for Chemical and Materials Engineers is organized by both engineering subject area and materials class to give instructors versatility in structuring and presenting their courses. Detailed sections on metals and ceramics contain all the contents of a standard course. More advanced topics found in sections on polymers, composites, and biomaterials also receive ample and equivalent coverage. All topics are presented from the standpoint of fundamental engineering concepts of thermodynamics, kinetics, and transport phenomena. Additional engineering topics of materials processing and materials selection and design provide important practical instruction for tomorrow′s materials engineers.

Ideal for either a one– or two–semester undergraduate course, An Introduction to Materials Engineering and Science for Chemical and Materials Engineers provides a unique educational tool for the student. Resources for learning include:

  • Cooperative learning exercises with example problems geared towards active learning principles
  • Instructional objectives to assist both students and teachers in determining the extent and depth of understanding required for each topic, and to assist in course assessment for accreditation purposes
  • Detailed case studies in materials selection, application, and design
  • 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, as well as those of biomedical, mechanical, electrical, or civil engineering, will all find this book an invaluable resource for establishing a solid understanding of the field.
