Synopsis

Materials Science for Engineers by J. C. Anderson, Keith D. Leaver, Rees D. Rawlings, Patrick S. Leevers

This fifth edition of a successful textbook continues to provide students with an introduction to the basic principles of materials science over a broad range of topics. The authors have revised and updated this edition to include many new applications and recently developed materials. The book is presented in three parts. The first section discusses the physics, chemistry, and internal structure of materials. The second part examines the mechanical properties of materials and their application in engineering situations. The final section presents the electromagnetic properties of materials and their application. Each chapter begins with an outline of the relevance of its topics and ends with problems that require an understanding of the theory and some reasoning ability to resolve. These are followed by self-assessment questions, which test students' understanding of the principles of materials science and are designed to quickly cover the subject area of the chapter. This edition of Materials Science for Engineers includes an expanded treatment of many materials, particulary polymers, foams, composites and functional materials. Of the latter, superconductors and magnetics have received greater coverage to account for the considerable development in these fields in recent years. New sections on liquid crystals, superalloys, and organic semiconductors have also been added to provide a comprehensive overview of the field of materials science.

Reviews

The whole book is an easy-to-read introduction into some of the most important and interesting parts of materials science. It focuses on the main issues and treats these in a clear and precise manner . A number of end-of-chapter problems and well-selected self-assessment questions (with answers) will enable students to test their understanding of the text . [Some] textbooks try to introduce microstructural characterization and micromechanical modelling at the undergraduate stage, but many statements turn out to be incorrect ... . This is what the present book carefully avoids and what might be a key to its success. - Materials World, Vol. 13, No. 7, July 2005

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

Lorraine Woods

This company is amazing; not only is it is a great opportunity to get books and review them but everyone is so friendly and supportive!

Jemma Rubens, age 10

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

Katie Lonsdale

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

Shannon-Louise Masters – age 15

Love “Lovereading4kids” as my son gets to hear about & read new books before his mates which keeps him interested in reading=a very happy Mum

Liz Evans

Writing reviews help the children with their literacy skills and we always read the books together which gives us good quality family time!
