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

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.

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.
