Engineering Materials: An Introduction to Microstructures and Processing is a comprehensive introduction to microstructures and processing of materials for engineering students and other related courses. It is composed of chapters that are arranged into four sections: metals, ceramics, polymers, and composites, which are the distinct generic classes of materials. The materials are presented in an easy-to-read style, while establishing the main concepts and providing details on how processing, microstructures, and physicochemical characters are interrelated. The book emphasizes the relationship between structure, processing and properties, of both conventional and innovative materials. It provides detailed discussions of the different aspects of transformations, including interface kinetics, nucleation and growth, and constitutional undercooling. The book also presents new case studies and examples to illustrate, develop and consolidate the different topics. The text features new photographs and links to Google Earth, websites and video clips, and a companion site with access to instructors' resources: solution manual, image bank of figures from the book and a section of interactive materials science tutorials. The text aims to provide detailed discussions about engineering materials to senior-level and postgraduate students of mechanical engineering, manufacturing, materials science, engineering design, products design, aeronautical engineering, and other engineering sciences. * Many new or revised applications-based case studies and examples* Treatment of phase diagrams integrated within the main text* Increased emphasis on the relationship between structure, processing and properties, in both conventional and innovative materials* Frequent worked examples - to consolidate, develop, and challenge* Many new photographs and links to Google Earth, websites, and video clips* Accompanying companion site with access to instructors' resources, including a suite of interactive materials science tutorials, a solutions manual, and an image bank of figures from the book.

Deformation and Fracture Mechanics of Engineering Materials provides a combined fracture mechanics-materials approach to the fracture of engineering solids with comprehensive treatment and detailed explanations and references, making it the perfect resource for senior and graduate engineering students, and practicing engineers alike. The 5th edition includes new end-of-chapter homework problems, examples, illustrations, and a new chapter on products liability and recall addressing the associated social consequences of product failure. The new edition continues to discuss actual failure case histories, and includes new discussion of the fracture behavior and fractography of ceramics, glasses, and composite materials, and a section on natural materials including bone and sea shells. New co-authors Richard P. Vinci and Jason L. Hertzberg add their talent and expertise to broaden the book's perspective, while maintaining a balance between the continuum mechanics understanding of the failure of solids and the roles of the material's nano- and microstructure as they influence the mechanical properties of materials.

"Engineering Materials 2" is a best-selling stand-alone text in its own right for more advanced students of materials science and mechanical engineering, and is the follow-up to its renowned companion text, "Engineering Materials 1: An Introduction to Properties, Applications and Design". This book develops a detailed understanding of the fundamental properties of engineering materials, how they are controlled by processing, formed, joined and finished, and how all of these factors influence the selection and design of materials in real-world engineering applications. This book is one of the best-selling materials properties texts; companion text to Ashby and Jones' 'Engineering Materials 1: An Introduction to their Properties and Applications' book. It provides new student friendly format, with enhanced pedagogy including more case studies, worked examples, student questions and a full instructor's manual. It is written by world-renowned author team.

This book presents a comprehensive treatment of the principles of the mechanical behavior of materials. Appropriate for senior/ graduate courses, "Mechanical Behavior of Materials", is distinguished by its focus on the relationship amongst macroscopic properties, material microstructure and fundamental concepts of bonding and crystal structure. Courtney's second edition brings the reader up-to-date on recent advances in improving and understanding materials behavior new edition contains new case studies, solved example problems and incorporates real life examples. The new edition also contains a new chapter (14) on Cellular Solids. The revision retains its extensive coverage of nonmetallics while increasing coverage of ceramics, composites, and polymerics that have emerged as structural materials in their own right and are now competitive with metals in many applications.
