Fundamentals of Materials Science for Technologists

Properties, Testing, and Laboratory Exercises, Second Edition

Author: Larry Horath

Publisher: Waveland Press

ISBN: 1478635185

Category: Technology & Engineering

Page: 598

View: 3805

Horath effectively combines principles and theory with practical applications to provide a solid understanding of the characteristics of materials used in today’s machines, devices, structures, and consumer products. Straightforward, nonmathematical coverage uncovers the basic premises of materials science and mechanical behavior as they relate to all types of materials: ferrous and nonferrous metals; polymers and elastomers; wood and wood products; ceramics and glass; cement, concrete, and asphalt; composites; adhesives and coatings; and fuels and lubricants. An examination of the chemistry of materials illuminates the common properties important to material applications and how they may be created, reduced, and altered for the design and development of additional materials. Clearly written with an applied, problem-solving approach, the Second Edition is a sound introduction to materials technology. Strong coverage of the destructive and nondestructive evaluation of material properties builds the groundwork for inspection processes and testing techniques, such as tensile, creep, compression, shear, bend or flexure, hardness, impact, and fatigue. Laboratory assignments support the text with numerous hands-on exercises that develop skills in industry-sanctioned testing procedures, data collection, reporting and graphing, and determining additional appropriate tests. Additional supplementary resource materials for instructors and students are available for download here.

The seventh edition ofMechanical Engineering Designmarks a return to the basic approaches that have made this book the standard in machine design for over 40 years. At the same time it has been significantly updated and modernized for today's engineering students and professional engineers. Working from extensive market research and reviews of the 6th edition, the new 7th edition features reduced coverage of uncertainty and statistical methods. Statistics is now treated (in chapter 2) as one of several methods available to design engineers, and statistical applications are no longer integrated throughout the text, examples and problem sets. Other major changes include updated coverage of the design process, streamlined coverage of statistics, a more practical overview of materials and materials selection (moved to chapter 3),revised coverage of failure and fatigue, and review of basic strength of materials topics to make a clearer link with prerequisite courses. Overall coverage of basic concepts has been made more clear and concise, with some advanced topics deleted, so that readers can easily navigate key topics. Problem sets have been improved, with new problems added to help students progressively work through them. The book has an Online Learning Center with several powerful components: MATLAB for Machine Design (featuring highly visual MATLAB simulations and accompanying source code); the "FEPC" finite element program, with accompanying Finite Element Primer and FEM Tutorials; interactive FE Exam questions for Machine Design; and Machine Design Tutorials for study of key concepts from Parts I and II of the text. Complete Problem Solutions and PowerPoint slides of book illustrations are available for instructors, under password protection. A printed Instructor's Solutions Manual is also available, with detailed solutions to all chapter problems.

It provides a clear and thorough presentation of both the theory and application of the important fundamental topics of these subjects that are often used in many engineering disciplines. The development emphasizes the importance of satisfying equilibrium, compatibility of deformation, and material behavior requirements. The hallmark of the book, however, remains the same as the author’s unabridged versions, and that is, strong emphasis is placed on drawing a free-body diagram, and the importance of selecting an appropriate coordinate system and an associated sign convention whenever the equations of mechanics are applied. Throughout the book, many analysis and design applications are presented, which involve mechanical elements and structural members often encountered in engineering practice. Also Available with Pearson Mastering Engineering™.. Pearson Mastering Engineering is an online homework, tutorial, and assessment program designed to work with this text to engage students and improve results. Interactive, self-paced tutorials provide individualized coaching to help students stay on track. With a wide range of activities available, students can actively learn, understand, and retain even the most difficult concepts.
