Overview

Discover why materials behave the way they do with ESSENTIALS OF MATERIALS SCIENCE AND ENGINEERING, 4TH Edition. This books focuses on materials engineering to explain how to process materials to suit your designs. Rather than simply memorizing facts or lumping materials into broad categories, you gain an understanding of the whys and hows behind materials science and engineering. This knowledge of materials science provides an important framework for understanding the principles used today to engineer materials. Detailed solutions and meaningful examples assist you in learning principles while significant end-of-chapter problems provide ample practice. MindTap digital resources help you learn on your terms with an interactive eBook and personalized learning tools.

Dr. Donald R. Askeland joined the University of Missouri-Rolla (now the Missouri University of Science and Technology) in 1970 after obtaining his Ph.D. 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 as well as the development of this well-respected text. Dr. Askeland is also active in research involving metals casting and metals joining. His focus is primarily 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 his work is interdisciplinary, providing data for creating computer models and validation of such models.

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 current position, Dr. Wright served as 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.
