Overview

About the Product

The Science and Engineering of Materials Sixth Edition describes the foundations and applications of materials science as predicated upon the structure-processing-properties paradigm with the goal of providing enough science so that the reader may understand basic materials phenomena, and enough engineering to prepare a wide range of students for competent professional practice. By selecting the appropriate topics from the wealth of material provided in The Science and Engineering of Materials, instructors can emphasize materials, provide a general overview, concentrate on mechanical behavior, or focus on physical properties. Since the book has more material than is needed for a one-semester course, students will also have a useful reference for subsequent courses in manufacturing, materials, design, or materials selection.

Features

  • Chapter Openings introduce the student to relevant topics and ideas covered in that chapter.

  • Have You Ever Wondered? questions designed to pique the interest of the reader relate the material covered in the chapter to its real world application.

  • Considerably more focused on core Materials Science.

  • Includes end-of-chapter design problems and chapter summaries.

  • A glossary of key words and definitions can be found at the end of each chapter.

  • Instructor Supplements include a Solutions Manual that provides complete solutions to selected problems, annotated Powerpoint slides, and a bank of images from the text.

About the Author

Donald R. Askeland

Dr. Donald R. Askeland joined the University of Missouri-Rolla (now the Missouri University of Science and Technology) in 1970 after obtaining his Ph.D. in metallurgical engineering from the University of Michigan. His primary interest is teaching, which has resulted in a variety of campus, university and industry awards as well as the development of this well-respected text. Dr. Askeland is also active in research involving metals casting and metals joining. His focus is primarily in the production, treatment and joining of cast irons, gating and fluidity of aluminum alloys and optimization of casting processes. Additional work has concentrated on lost foam casting, permanent mold casting and investment casting. Much of his work is interdisciplinary, providing data for creating computer models and validation of such models.

Pradeep P. Fulay

Pradeep P. Fulay received his Ph.D. from the University of Arizona and teaches at the University of Pittsburgh. His research is primarily concerned with the synthesis and processing of ceramic powders and thin films, consisting of nano-sized primary particles/grains. His current research involves development of novel synthesis and processing protocols for electro-optic and ferroelectric ceramics and studies related to the relationships between their microstructure and dielectric/optical properties. Dr. Fulay is also researching fundamental of magnetorheological (MR) fluids. He is a Fellow to the American Ceramic Society.

Wendelin J. Wright

Dr. Wendelin Wright is a professor at Bucknell University with a joint appointment in the departments of mechanical engineering and chemical engineering. She received her B.S., M.S. and Ph.D. in materials science and engineering from Stanford University. Prior to assuming her current position, Dr. Wright served as a faculty member at Santa Clara University. Her research interests focus on the mechanical behavior of materials, particularly those of metallic glasses. She is the recipient of the 2003 Walter J. Gores Award for Excellence in Teaching (Stanford University's highest teaching honor), a 2005 Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers and a 2010 National Science Foundation CAREER Award. Dr. Wright is a licensed professional engineer in metallurgy in California and a fellow of ASM International.
