Product description


"Materials and Design: The Art and Science of Material Selection in Product Design...editor's choice." - Design Issues

'..the book has very interesting and thorough information, and would be a very useful tool for an industrial designer.'
Materials World, May 2004

"Both interesting and intriguing, this book should prove a valuable resource for those starting out in design or is also fun to browse through." Science Magazine, June 2003

'An attractive and informative book.' David Birkett, Chemistry in Britain, London, February 2003

'The book's quality of reproduction is excellent and it is very well illustrated with a large number of diagrams, sketches and photographs, most of them in colour.' K.L. Edwards, University of Darby, 2003

"When I looked at this book for the first time, I could not stop myself from being amazed with its concept, form, design, and contents. ... It is a unique book that elucidates evolution of products and the materials from a historical to the modern perspective. ... I would strongly recommend this volume for design students and engineers, materials engineers, and mechanical engineers.
- Corrosion June 2004

"...well-written and easy-to-read...unique and a worthwhile reference for designers, engineers, and suppliers." - Adhesives & Sealants Newsletter, 2006
