The Science and Engineering of Materials – Donald R. Askeland – 4th Edition


New edition of a classic, which in addition to describing the fundamentals of science and engineering materials, exemplifies them with current applications. It also rewrites and updates topics that have been incorporated into this discipline, such as electronic, magnetic, photonic materials and thermal properties of materials in the context of innovation in many areas of engineering.

It introduces concepts such as nanodurity and microstructural characteristics of the fracture in ceramics, glass and composite materials. It integrates elements in the design with probability of failure (Weibull distribution). The reorganization of the sections allows to delimit each one of the approaches and levels of application of the science and engineering of the materials.
