Fundamentals of Materials Science and Engineering – William D. Callister – 5th Edition


on the extraordinary success of best-selling editions, Callister’s new Edition of Fundamentals of Materials and Engineering, continues to promote understanding of the three primary types of materials (metals, ceramics, and polymers) and composites, as well as the relationships that exist between the elements of materials and their properties.

Extensive, introductory-level, coverage of mechanical properties and failure which is the most important materials considerations for many .

  • This 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.
