  • Elementary Materials Science covers the subject of materials science with few equations; it is intended primarily for students with limited science backgrounds who are interested in materials. The book also will be useful for non-technical professionals in the materials industry. The book's introductory chapter presents the basics underlying the study of materials: bonding, crystal structures, and amorphous materials. Other important aspects of materials science are covered in chapters devoted to phase relations, mechanical behavior, electrical behavior, magnetic behavior, and corrosion. Non-ferrous metals, iron and steel, ceramics, polymers, composites, and wood are each covered in ...

  • This exciting textbook on the structure, property and applications of materials, is written for advanced undergraduate courses on the principles of Materials Science. It covers the main topics commonly encountered by students in materials science and engineering but explores them in greater depth than standard introductory textbooks, making it ideal for use on a second-level course and upwards. Major topics covered include crystallography, symmetry and bonding-related properties, phase diagrams and transformations, ordering, diffusion, solidification, and dedicated chapters on amorphous, liquid crystal, magnetic and novel materials, including shape memory. Each chapter contains numero...
