Callister and Rethwisch's Fundamentals of MaterialsScience and Engineering Fourth Edition continues totake an integrated approach to the organization of topics;looking at one property type at a time for all three basic materialtypes -- metals, ceramics, and polymeric materials. Thisorder for the early introduction of non-metals and supports theengineer's role in choosing materials based upon theircharacteristics.Clear and concise terminology is used and material ispresented at an appropriate level for both student comprehensionand instructors who may not have a materials background.Discussions on new, cutting-edge materials have also been added tothis new edition to keep it as upto date as possible.
