Overview

This updated Seventh Edition of THE SCIENCE AND ENGINEERING OF MATERIALS helps engineering students develop an understanding of the relationship between structure, processing, and properties of materials. By selecting the appropriate topics from the book's wealth of material, instructors can emphasize materials, provide a general overview, concentrate on mechanical behavior, or focus on physical properties. Because 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. The Askeland text emphasizes a science-based approach to materials engineering that highlights how the structure of materials at various length scales gives rise to materials properties. This connection between structure and properties is key to innovating with materials, both in the synthesis of new materials and enabling new applications with existing materials. The science-based approach highlights how materials change with time and due to loading and environment - a key concept that is often overlooked when using charts and databases to select materials.

Donald R. Askeland, Missouri University of Science and Technology, Emeritus

Dr. Donald R. Askeland joined the University of Missouri-Rolla (now the Missouri University of Science and Technology) in 1970 after obtaining his doctorate 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 and the development of THE SCIENCE AND ENGINEERING OF MATERIALS textbook. Dr. Askeland is also active in research involving metals casting and metals joining, particularly 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 this work is interdisciplinary, providing data for creating computer models and validation of such models.

Wendelin J. Wright, Bucknell University

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 position at Bucknell, Dr. Wright was 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.
  • The costs of engineering materials have been updated to keep the content current.
  • Each chapter begins with learning objectives to focus and guide students throughout their studies.
  • New problems have been added to every chapter to increase the number of problems by 15%.
  • Chapter 15 on ceramic materials has been broadened in order to provide a more comprehensive coverage of this important class of materials.
  • Chapter Openings and Introductions give students an engaging preview of the topics and ideas to come.
  • "Have You Ever Wondered?" sections pique student interest by relating the material covered in the chapter to its real-world application.
  • EIT exam-oriented questions help students prepare for the Engineer in Training exam.
  • Chapter summaries and glossaries of key words with definitions at the end of each chapter help students master key concepts.
  • End-of-chapter design problems, including some problems that require the use of the Knovel® online reference tool, help students develop their problem-solving skills.
  • Extensive use of micrographs throughout the text emphasize the importance of structure at different length scales.
