Product Description

Review

"Excellent book, well laid out, logical order. Easy to include logically in a lecture course. Good case study examples. Very suitable as introduction to materials science. Covers complete course. Easy to read, same order of topics as lecturers. As an introduction to materials technology, it is the best book available. It is ideal for my second level 'Materials Technology' module (fast fracture, creep, fatigue, oxidation and corrosion)... Excellent readability.

Format: Paperback
Superb book for first year engineering students. Especially good for the Cambridge Engineering Tripos as the book is written by former members of the department. Explanations are clear, diagrams are good and the depth is perfectly balanced, not excessively deep, but enough for a good understanding of the content.

Need's example problems 22 Mar 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book covers the material well, but it doesn't provide any worked example problems that display the application of equations or techniques. Any book intended to be a text book for engineering students should provide numerous worked example problems for students. The worked problems are a much better refresher for future reference than rereading the text.
Awesome 10 Feb 2009
By John Edmiston - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I don't know why but this book really enabled my transition into an appreciation for 'engineering science' and then gave way to graduate study. Realizing that there is a certain logical behavior to materials behavior, which may be understood on very intuitive physical terms. So for that reason I recommend this to other students. I may be biased because things started to make sense to me after this book, and I don't know how much of that to attribute to the books writing, but I attribute a lot.
