Book Description

Foundations of Materials Science and Engineering, 6th Edition (PDF) is aimed to provide numerous topics pertaining to the field with the appropriate level of depth and breadth of coverage. This is done with the intention of preparing supplies scientists and engineers for the future. The value of the book resides in the way that it presents ideas from both the science of materials (basic information) and the engineering of materials in an even-handed manner (utilized data). Brief textual explanations, interesting and relevant imagery, comprehensive pattern problems, digital dietary supplements, and homework problems are some of the ways that the fundamental and applied ideas are integrated into the course material. Therefore, this text book is ideal for both an introductory course in materials at the sophomore level and a more advanced (junior/senior level) second course in materials science and engineering. Both of these courses are typically taken at the same level.
