For courses in Metallurgy, Materials Science, and Materials Testing in two- and four-year technology programs. Clearly written and with a practical, problem-solving approach, this introduction to the characteristics and testing of materials effectively combines the background students need in principles and theory with plenty of applications, to provide a solid understanding of the materials used in today's machines, devices, structures, and consumer products. Straightforward, non-mathematical coverage is aimed at answering the qwhyq and qhowq questions of materials science and materials testing as they relate to all types of materials--concrete, wood, metals, and polymers--and is geared to helping students build a foundation from which they can learn to design and develop additional materials and conduct materials testing procedures on their own.It also discusses the advantages and disadvantages of various materials.Features of this text include: Numerous illustrations, examples, and sample data to help reinforce the key concepts of the text Problems and exercises to provide a ...
