Product description

Review

"Ashby (emeritus) and Jones (both Cambridge U.) have made considerable changes to the 2005 third edition (the first edition was published in 1980), among them new illustrative photographs, references to reliable websites, and worked examples to many of the chapters. The textbook is for a first course on materials for undergraduate engineering students, holding up one corner of a curriculum that includes design, mechanics, and structures. It covers price and availability; the elastic moduli; yield strength, tensile strength, and ductility; fast fracture, brittle fracture, and toughness; fatigue failure; creep deformation and fracture; oxidation and corrosion; and friction, abrasion, and wear." --Reference and Research News, October 2012

About the Author

Dr. Jones is co-author of Engineering Materials 1 and 2 and lead author for the 3rd and 4th editions. He was the founder editor of Elsevier's journal Engineering Failure Analysis, and founder chair of Elsevier's International Conference on Engineering Failure Analysis series. His research interests are in materials engineering, and along with serving as President of Christ's College at the University of Cambridge he now works internationally advising major companies and legal firms on failures of large steel structures.

Format: Paperback
This is the fourth edition of Ashby's introductory Engineering Materials book.
Unlike most engineering books, 'Ashby' volumes 1 and 2 work standalone - you don't need a lecturer!
Not only are these by far the best general materials books around, they also lead you through how Engineering is actually (or at least how it should be!) done.

Quite a bit of maths in this book however it's relatively easy to understand quite useful for Undergraduate students. Lots of explanations and definitions of terms.

This book is more suitable as a reference for a practicing engineer, rather than a textbook for an undergraduate student - it contains all the necessary information, and the most important thing - excellent worked examples; but it is lacking on explanations and worked examples on basic things.

To um up, I definitely recommend this book for all practicing engineers, as it contains valuable information and case studies.
