Building on the extraordinary success of best-selling editions, Callister’s new Edition of Fundamentals of Materials Science and Engineering, continues to promote student understanding of the three primary types of materials (metals, ceramics, and polymers) and composites, as well as the relationships that exist between the structural elements of materials and their properties.
Extensive, introductory-level, coverage of mechanical properties and failure which is the most important materials considerations for many engineers.
- This book judiciously and extensively makes use of illustrations and photographs. The approximate 500 figures include a large number of photographs that shoe the microstructure of various materials.
- Current and up-to-date with the latest developments in materials science and engineering.
