Selection and Use of Engineering Materials, Second Edition covers the substantial development in the selection and application of materials and of associated materials. This book is organized into four parts encompassing 20 chapters that also consider the advances in materials databases and computer programs. The first part deals with the motivation, cost basis, service requirements, failure analysis, specifications, and quality control of engineering materials. The second part describes the mechanical properties of these materials, including static strength, toughness, stiffness, fatigue, creep, and temperature resistance. The third part examines the selection requirements for surface durability, such as corrosion and wear resistance. This part also explores the relationship between materials selection and materials processing, as well as the formalization of selection procedures. The fourth part provides some case studies in materials selection. This book will prove useful to materials scientists and practicing engineers.
