This successful text provides a survey of virtually all important engineering materials - metals, polymers, ceramics, composites, electronic materials, and construction materials - while covering structures, physical and mechanical properties, corrosion, processing, and selection. Topics are presented in sufficient detail t make this book a valuable reference for students and practicing engineers alike. In the Third Edition, more than 100 new design examples challenge students to analyze the properties of materials when designing structures, parts, and systems. A completely redrawn art program, new two-color book design, and colorful photographic inserts help students visualize the structure and behavior of materials in specific applications. Substantially revised and updated chapters on ceramics, polymers, and electronic materials balance Askeland's traditionally strong treatment of metals.
