Materials - North American Edition, 2nd Edition

Materials - North American Edition, 2nd Edition is the essential materials engineering text and resource for students developing skills and understanding of materials properties and selection for engineering applications. Taking a unique design- led approach that is broader in scope than other texts, Materials - North American Edition, 2nd Edition 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 materials in design. Materials - North American Edition, 2nd Edition retains its design-led focus and strong emphasis on visual communication while expanding its treatment of crystallography and phase diagrams by use of ";Guided Learning"; sections to fully meet the needs of instructors teaching an introductory course in materials.


  • Design-led approach motivates and engages students in the study of materials science and engineering through real-life case studies and illustrative applications
  • Highly visual full color graphics facilitate understanding of materials concepts and properties
  • Chapters 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 process
  • For instructors, a solutions manual, lecture slides, online image bank and materials selection charts for use in class handouts or lecture presentations are available
  • Links with the Cambridge Engineering Selector (CES EduPack), the powerful materials selection software.
