Materials are the foundation of technology. As such, most universities provide engineering undergraduates with the fundamental concepts of materials science, including crystal structures, imperfections, phase diagrams, materials processing, and materials properties. Few, however, offer the practical, applications-oriented background that their students need to succeed in industry. Applied Materials Science: Applications of Engineering Materials in Structural, Electronics, Thermal, and Other Industries fills that gap. From a cross-disciplinary perspective that reflects both the multifunctionality of many materials and the wide scope industrial needs, the author examines the practical applications of metal, ceramic, polymer, cement, carbon, and composite materials across a broad range of industries. The topics addressed include electronic packaging, smart materials, thermal management, nondestructive evaluation, and materials development. The text is clear, coherent, and tutorial in style, includes numerous up-to-date references, and provides background material in a series of appendices. Unique in its breadth of coverage of both materials and their applications, Applied Materials Science is both scientifically rich and technologically relevant. If you work or teach those that aspire to work in an engineering capacity, you will find no text or reference that better prepares its readers for real-world applications of engineering materials.

A practical reference for all plastics engineers who are seeking to answer a question, solve a problem, reduce a cost, improve a design or fabrication process, or even venture into a new market. Applied Plastics Engineering Handbook covers both polymer basics - helpful to bring readers quickly up to speed if they are not familiar with a particular area of plastics processing - and recent developments - enabling practitioners to discover which options best fit their requirements. Each chapter is an authoritative source of practical advice for engineers, providing authoritative guidance from experts that will lead to cost savings and process improvements. Throughout the book, the focus is on the engineering aspects of producing and using plastics. The properties of plastics are explained along with techniques for testing, measuring, enhancing and analyzing them. Materials and additives are described as well as their characteristics and effects. The technologies and machinery used in processing operations are covered with reference to product design. And recent developments in a cross-section of applications demonstrate in a pragmatic way, the opportunities as well as the limitations of plastics. • Practical introductions to both core topics and new developments make this work equally valuable for newly qualified plastics engineers seeking the practical rules-of-thumb they don't teach you in school, and experienced practitioners evaluating new technologies or getting up to speed on a new field. • The depth and detail of the coverage of new developments enables engineers and managers to gain knowledge of, and evaluate, new technologies and materials in key growth areas such as biomaterials and nanotechnology. • This highly practical handbook is set apart from other references in the field, being written by engineers for an audience of engineers and providing a wealth of real-world examples, best practice guidance and rules-of-thumb.

This book, which constitutes the first English edition of the French bestseller 'Introduction à la science des matériaux', fits into a global and unified vision of this discipline. A unified teaching in Materials Science is essential, particularly since in recent years, empiricism has strongly been shaken by the intensity of scientific innovation in this area. This work fits well in this global vision. Its exposition is well balanced between fundamental notions and applications and illustrated with concise tables and well-chosen illustrative examples. The didactic approach of this book is perfectly suited to engineering students, as well as physicists or chemists who are not specialized in materials science but who, nevertheless, wish to be aware of this discipline. The work should also be much appreciated by specialists in a particular field of materials science wishing to have a global view on the subject and to position their activity in a wider context. It will be equally very useful to those who left the University benches more than ten years ago. Three main subjects are considered in this work : 1. A basic description of the main classes of materials (metals, ceramics and organic polymers). 2. A concise study of structural imperfection in crystals, phase equilibria and transitions introducing the concept of alloys and a description of microstructures. 3. An analysis of materials behaviour under mechanical constraints and during rupture, and also their physical properties. A concise description of those physical properties which are the most important for the materials science engineer is equally given in this work. It is completed by a study of degradation and corrosion as well as a description of the main composite materials and an introduction to nanomaterials and nanostructured materials.

The subject of electronic and ionic materials has grown rapidly over the last 20 to 30 years. The application of these materials has had a significant impact on modern industries and on society in general. The subject is so important that no electrical engineering, materials science and engineering, applied physics or chemistry degree would be complete without it. This valuable textbook is aimed at engineering and technology undergraduates who have a background in physics or chemistry only at first year level. It provides a basic understanding of the properties and uses of a wide range of electrically and ionically conducting materials. It is not intended to be a solid state physics or chemistry book, and so the mathematics is kept to a minimum. However, it is intended to give the student an overview of a wide range of electrical materials and their uses in today's society.
