About this book
The first edition of this highly successful text aimed, 'to deal with the basic principles of materials science in a simply yet meaningful manner'. The second edition broadened the scope to incorporate the higher years of a degree course and included many more worked examples. This new third edition remains firmly targetted at the undergraduate market, and is comprised of five main sections: Materials Science, Engineering Materials, Forming Processes, Behaviour in Service and Property and Evaluation Tests, resulting in 32 chapters (as compared to 17 in the 2nd edition). The numbers of worked examples have been reduced, due to the publication of John's Work Out: Engineering Materials which is recommended to be used alongside the main text and is comprised mainly of worked examples and problems.
