Engineering Materials 1 gives a broad introduction to the properties of materials used in a wide range of engineering applications. It provides a complete course in engineering materials for students with no previous background in the subject. The third edition has been revised, expanded and improved throughout. Chapters remain arranged in groups dealing with particular classes of properties and the coverage of the book progresses through property definitions, measurement, underlying principles and material selection data. The focus throughout is on the development of knowledge that will enable readers to understand and design materials with better properties. New and key features include: Detailed case studies with practical applications Five new chapters covering aspects of fracture, fatigue and design with materials Enhanced design and applications emphasis throughout Expanded coverage of non-metallic materials, environmental impact, fractography and corrosion Many more examples and exercises for class and homework use Accompanying website with access to instructor resources including a suite of interactive materials tutorials, solutions manual and image bank of figures from the bookAshby, Michael F. is the author of 'Engineering Materials 1 An Introduction To Properties, Applications And Design', published 2005 under ISBN 9780750663809 and ISBN 0750663804.
