Detailed description
Callister and Rethwisch's Fundamentals of Materials Science and Engineering Fourth Edition continues to take an integrated approach to the organization of topics; looking at one property type at a time for all three basic material types -- metals, ceramics, and polymeric materials. This order for the early introduction of non-metals and supports the engineer's role in choosing materials based upon their characteristics.

Clear and concise terminology is used and material is presented at an appropriate level for both student comprehension and instructors who may not have a materials background. Discussions on new, cutting-edge materials have also been added to this new edition to keep it as upto date as possible.
