Fundamentals of Materials Science and Engineering PDF

Fundamentals of Materials Science and Engineering takes an integrated approach to the sequence of topics – one specific structure, characteristic, or property type is covered in turn for all three basic material types: metals, ceramics, and polymeric materials.

This presentation permits the early introduction of non-metals and supports the engineer’s role in choosing materials based upon their characteristics. Using clear, concise terminology that is familiar to students, Fundamentals presents material at an appropriate level for both student comprehension and instructors who may not have a materials background.

Features – Fundamentals of Materials Science and Engineering

  • New resources designed to support a more engaging Learning Experience and more meaningful Learning Outcomes.
  • VMSE (Virtual Materials Science & Engineering), with a new interface, helps students visualize concepts related to crystal structures, diffusion tensile tests, and more. For example, it allows students to rotate unit cells in 3-d to better understand molecular structures. Also includes a Database of Engineering Materials Properties that can be used for materials selection problems.
  • Questions about VMS: Questions that students need to use VMSE to answer help students get best value from its use, and instructors incentivize its use.
  • Video Tutorials:  Muddy Point videos feature a student explaining tough concepts that have been identified through research as the most difficult to understand.

Review – Fundamentals of Materials Science and Engineering

Callister “Fundamentals of Materials Science and Engineering: An Interactive Text” wins Textbook Excellence Award

SAN ANTONIO, June 9, 2001 ? The Text and Academic Authors Association awarded “Fundamentals of Materials Science and Engineering: An Interactive Text”, by William D. Callister, Jr., the 2001 Textbook Excellence Award (Texty) during the association’s awards banquet. The book is published by John Wiley & Sons. Among judges’ comments: “This book appears to be much better than the text I used in college. The figures are nicely done, and a second color is used effectively. The text is clearly written and well-designed.
A superior textbook on materials. Many outstanding illustrations. The inclusion of ceramics and polymers is a plus for modern engineers.”

TAA created the Textbook Excellence Award in 1992 to recognize current textbooks and learning materials. To be nomiated, a work must carry a copyright date for the previous or current year. Entries are not limited to books but may include learning materials of all mediums.

The Text and Academic Authors Association was established in 1987 for people interested in developing and publishing all kinds of educational materials, including textbooks, software, videos, monographs, reference books, newsletters, multimedia CD-ROM disks and others. TAA represents text and academic authors in matters involving them, including taxes, copyright and better appreciation of their work within academe. The association is also committed to improving the quality of educational materials.
