This introductory text is intended to provide undergraduate engineering students with the background needed to understand the science os structure-property relationships, as well as address the engineering concerns of materials selection in design, processing materials into useful products, and how materials degrade and fail in service. Specific topics include: physical and electronic structure; thermodynamics and kinetics; processing; mechanical, electrical, magnetic and optical properties; degradation; and failure and reliability. There is an accompanying interactive, computationally oriented, computer disk containing nine modules dealing with structure, phase diagrams, diffusion, and mechanical and electronic properties.This book covers all classes of engineering materials and stresses both fundamentals and modern applications.
