Product description

Review

From the first edition:

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

"Well presented, easy to read with concise descriptions. Very suitable for students on courses which involve art design and the use of modern materials" - Derrick Parker, Univ. of Portsmouth, Dept. Mech. & Manufacturing Eng

"I believe materials engineering faculty should use this book at some point in their materials engineering curriculum. It can then be a resource for students as they travel through the major. The same can be said in an ideal world for industrial engineering, industrial design, and maybe even mechanical engineering."--Blair London, Cal Poly San Luis Obispo

"I don't know of any similar book. I used Ashby & Jones's Engineering Materials I & II for many years, but these are more technical and probably better as stand-alone texts for an engineering course. I think Materials & Design would be an excellent supplement to an Engineering Materials course, and could serve as the primary text in Industrial or Product Design course focusing on materials."--Gary Benenson, City College of New York
