Introduction to Materials Science and Engineering: A Design-Led Approach is ideal for a first course in materials for mechanical, civil, biomedical, aerospace and other engineering disciplines. The authors’ systematic method includes first analyzing and selecting properties to match materials to design through the use of real-world case studies and then examining the science behind the material properties to better engage students whose jobs will be centered on design or applied industrial research. As with Ashby’s other leading texts, the book emphasizes visual communication through material property charts and numerous schematics better illustrate the origins of properties, their manipulation and fundamental limits.
