Engineering Materials 2, Fifth Edition: An Introduction to Microstructures and Processing is a comprehensive introduction to microstructures and the processing of materials. It is comprised of four sections covering metals, ceramics, polymers and composites. The materials are presented in an easy-to-read style, but also provide 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.
