engineering applications. Taking a unique design-led approach that is broader in scope than other texts, Materials meets the curriculum needs of a wide variety of courses in the materials and design field, including introduction to materials science and engineering, engineering materials, materials selection and processing, and behavior of materials. This new edition retains its design-led focus and strong emphasis on visual communication while expanding its coverage of the physical basis of material properties, and process selection. Design-led approach motivates and engages students in the study of materials science and engineering through real-life case studies and illustrative applicationsHighly visual full color graphics facilitate understanding of materials concepts and propertiesChapters on materials selection and design are integrated with chapters on materials fundamentals, enabling students to see how specific fundamentals can be important to the design processFor instructors, a solutions manual, lecture slides, image bank and other ancillaries are available at http: // Links with the CES EduPack Materials and Process Information and Selection software. See http: //www.grantadesign/education/textbooks/MaterialsESPD for information New to this edition Expansion of the atomic basis of properties, and the distinction between bonding-sensitive and microstructure-sensitive propertiesProcess selection extended to include a structured approach to managing the expert knowledge of how materials, processes and design interact (with an introduction to additive manufacturing)Coverage of materials and the environment has been updated with a new section on Sustainability and Sustainable TechnologyText and figures have been revised and updated throughoutThe number of worked examples and end-of-chapter problems has been significantly increased
