For courses in Metallurgy, Materials Science, and Materials Testing in two- and four-year technology programs.
Clearly written and with a practical, problem-solving approach, this introduction to the characteristics and testing of materials effectively combines the background students need in principles and theory with plenty of applications, to provide a solid understanding of the materials used in today's machines, devices, structures, and consumer products. Straightforward, non-mathematical coverage is aimed at answering the why and how questions of materials science and materials testing as they relate to all types of materialsâconcrete, wood, metals, and polymersâand is geared to helping students build a foundation from which they can learn to design and develop additional materials and conduct materials testing procedures on their own.
