Engineering Materials 2

An Introduction to Microstructures and Processing

Engineering Materials 2 is one of the leading self-contained texts for more advanced students of materials science and mechanical engineering. The book provides a concise introduction to the microstructures and processing of materials and shows how these are related to the properties required in engineering design. As with previous editions, each chapter is designed to provide the content of one 50-minute lecture. The fourth edition has been updated to include new case studies, more worked examples, links to relevant websites and video clips. Other changes include an increased emphasis on the relationship between structure, processing and properties, and integration of the popular tutorial on phase diagrams into the main text.

Engineering Materials 2, Fourth Edition is perfect as a stand-alone text for an advanced course in engineering materials or a second text with its companion Engineering Materials 1: An Introduction to Properties, Applications, and Design, Fourth Edition in a two-semester course or sequence.

Senior level and postgraduate study in departments of mechanical engineering; materials sciences; manufacturing; engineering design; materials design; product design; aeronautical engineering; engineering sciences.
