Fundamentals of Materials Science and Engineering takes an integrated approach to the sequence of topics – one specific structure, characteristic, or property type is covered in turn for all three basic material types: metals, ceramics, and polymeric materials. This presentation permits the early introduction of non-metals and supports the engineer’s role in choosing materials based upon their characteristics. Using clear, concise terminology that is familiar to students, Fundamentals presents material at an appropriate level for both student comprehension and instructors who may not have a materials background. Fundamentals of Materials Science and Engineering is available with WileyPLUS, an online teaching and learning environment that integrates the entire digital textbook with the most effective instructor and student resources to fit every learning style. The text builds student confidence with the opportunity to practice problems and complete homework with instant feedback in WileyPLUS.
