Materials Science and Engineering An Introduction, 10th Edition
In this tenth edition we have retained the objectives and approaches for teaching materials science and engineering that were presented in previous editions. These objectives are as follows:
• Present the basic fundamentals on a level appropriate for university/college students.
• Present the subject matter in a logical order, from the simple to the more complex.
• If a topic or concept is worth treating, then it is worth treating in sufficient detail and to the extent that students have the opportunity to fully understand it without having to consult other sources.
• Inclusion of features in the book that expedite the learning process, to include the following: photographs/illustrations; learning objectives; “Why Study . . .” and “Materials of Importance” items; “Concept Check” questions; questions and problems; Answers to Selected Problems; summary tables containing key equations and equation symbols; and a glossary (for easy reference).
• Employment of new instructional technologies to enhance the teaching and learning processes.
This new edition contains a number of new sections, as well as revisions/amplifications of other sections. These include the following:
• New discussions on the Materials Paradigm and Materials Selection (Ashby) Charts (Chapter 1)
• Revision of Design Example 8.1—“Materials Specification for a Pressurized Cylindrical Tank” (Chapter 8)
• New discussions on 3D printing (additive manufacturing)—Chapter 11 (metals), Chapter 13 (ceramics), and Chapter 15 (polymers)
• New discussions on biomaterials—Chapter 11 (metals), Chapter 13 (ceramics), and Chapter 15 (polymers)
• New section on polycrystalline diamond (Chapter 13)
• Revised discussion on the Hall effect (Chapter 18)
• Revised/expanded discussion on recycling issues in materials science and engineering (Chapter 22)
• All homework problems requiring computations have been refreshed
There are three versions of this textbook as follows:
• Digital (for purchase)—formatted as print; contains entire content
• Digital (in WileyPLUS)—formatted by section; contains entire content
• Abridged Print (Companion)—binder ready form; problem statements omitted
Associated with the textbook are online learning resources, which are available to both students and instructors. These resources are found on three websites: (1) WileyPLUS, (2) a Student Companion Site, and (3) an Instructor Companion Site.
WileyPLUS is a research-based online environment for effective teaching and learning. It builds students’ confidence by taking the guesswork out of studying by providing them with a clear roadmap: what is assigned, what is required for each assignment, and whether assignments are done correctly. Independent research has shown that students using WileyPLUS will take more initiative so the instructor has a greater impact on their achievement in the classroom and beyond. WileyPLUS also helps students study and progress at a pace that’s right for them. Our integrated resources available 24/7–function like a personal tutor, directly addressing each student’s demonstrated needs by providing specific problem-solving techniques.
What do students receive with WileyPLUS?
They can browse the following WileyPLUS resources by chapter.
• The Complete Digital Textbook (at a savings up to 60% of the cost of the in-print text). Each chapter is organized and accessed by section (and end-of-chapter elements). (Found under Read, Study & Practice/CONTENTS/Select Chapter Number/CHAPTER RESOURCES/Reading Content.)
• Virtual Materials Science and Engineering (VMSE). This web-based software package consists of interactive simulations and animations that enhance the learning of key concepts in materials science and engineering. Included in VMSE are eight modules and a materials properties/cost database. Titles of these modules are as follows: (1) Metallic Crystal Structures and Crystallography; (2) Ceramic Crystal Structures; (3) Repeat Unit and Polymer Structures; (4) Dislocations; (5) Phase Diagrams; (6) Diffusion; (7) Tensile Tests; and (8) Solid-Solution Strengthening. (Found under Read, Study & Practice.)
• Tutorial (“Muddiest Point”) Videos. These videos (narrated by a student) help students with concepts that are difficult to understand and with solving troublesome problems. (Found under Read, Study & Practice.)
• Library of Case Studies. One way to demonstrate principles of design in an engineering curriculum is via case studies: analyses of problem-solving strategies applied to real-world examples of applications/devices/failures encountered by engineers. Six case studies are provided as follows: (1) Materials Selection for a Torsionally Stressed Cylindrical Shaft; (2) Automobile Valve Spring; (3) Failure of an Automobile Rear Axle; (4) Artificial Total Hip Replacement; (5) Intraocular Lens Implants; and (6) Chemical Protective Clothing. (Found under Read, Study & Practice.)
• Mechanical Engineering (ME) Online Module. This module treats materials science/engineering topics not covered in the printed text that are relevant to mechanical engineering. (Found under Read, Study & Practice.)
• Flash Cards. A set of flash-cards has been generated for most chapters. These can be used in drills to memorize definitions of terms. (Found under Read, Study & Practice/CONTENTS/Select Chapter Number/CHAPTER RESOURCES/Flashcards.
• Extended Learning Objectives. This is a more extensive list of learning objectives than is provided at the beginning of each chapter. These direct the student to study the subject material to a greater depth. (Found under Read, Study & Practice/CONTENTS/Select Chapter Number/CHAPTER RESOURCES/Extended Learning Objectives.)
• Student Lecture Notes. These slides (in PowerPoint and PDF formats) are virtually identical to the lecture slides provided to an instructor for use in the classroom. The student set has been designed to allow for note taking on printouts. (Found under Read, Study & Practice/CONTENTS/Select Chapter Number/CHAPTER RESOURCES/Student Lecture Notes.)
• Answers to Concept Check questions. Students can visit the web site to find the correct answers to the Concept Check questions posed in the textbook. (Found under Read, Study & Practice/CONTENTS/Select Chapter Number/PRACTICE/ Concept Check Questions/Concept Check Number/Show Solution.)
• Online Self-Assessment Exercises. A set of questions and problems for each chapter that are similar to those found in the text. An answer to each problem/question entered by the student is assessed as either correct or incorrect, after which both the solution and answer are provided. (Found under Read, Study & Practice/CONTENTS/Select Chapter Number/PRACTICE/Practice Questions and Problems.)
• Math Skills Review. This is a tutorial that includes instructions on how to solve a variety of mathematical equations, some of which appear in the homework problems. Examples are also provided. (Found under Read, Study & Practice/ CONTENTS/Chapter 22.
