A balanced mechanics-materials approach and coverage of the latest developments in biomaterials and electronic materials, the new edition of this popular text is the most thorough and modern book available for upper-level undergraduate courses on the mechanical behavior of materials. To ensure that the student gains a thorough understanding the authors present the fundamental mechanisms that operate at micro- and nano-meter level across a wide-range of materials, in a way that is mathematically simple and requires no extensive knowledge of materials. This integrated approach provides a conceptual presentation that shows how the microstructure of a material controls its mechanical behavior, and this is reinforced through extensive use of micrographs and illustrations. New worked examples and exercises help the student test their understanding. Further resources for this title, including lecture slides of select illustrations and solutions for exercises, are available online at

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.
