Book Preface

In this fifth edition we have retained the objectives and approaches for teaching materials science and engineering that were presented in previous editions. These objectives are as follows:
• Present the basic fundamentals on a level appropriate for university/college students who have completed their freshmen calculus, chemistry, and physics courses.
• Present the subject matter in a logical order, from the simple to the more complex. Each chapter builds on the content of previous ones.
• If a topic or concept is worth treating, then it is worth treating in sufficient detail and to the extent that students have the opportunity to fully understand it without having to consult other sources; in addition, in most cases, some practical relevance is provided.
• Inclusion of features in the book that expedite the learning process, to include the following: photographs/illustrations (some in full color); learning objectives; “Why Study . . .” and “Materials of Importance” items (to provide relevance); “Concept Check” questions (to test conceptual understanding); end-of-chapter questions and problems (to develop understanding of concepts and problem-solving skills); end-of-book Answers to Selected Problems (to check accuracy of work); end-ofchapter summary tables containing key equations and equation symbols, and a glossary (for easy reference).
• Employment of new instructional technologies to enhance the teaching and learning processes.


This new edition contains a number of new sections, as well as revisions/amplifications of other sections. These include the following:
• Two new case studies: “Liberty Ship Failures” (Chapter 1) and “Use of Composites in the Boeing 787 Dreamliner” (Chapter 15)
• Bond hybridization in carbon (Chapter 2)
• Revision of discussions on crystallographic planes and directions to include the use of equations for the determination of planar and directional indices (Chapter 3)
• Revised discussion on determination of grain size (Chapter 5)
• New section on the structure of carbon fibers (Chapter 13)
• Revised/expanded discussions on structures, properties, and applications of the nanocarbons: fullerenes, carbon nanotubes, and graphene; also on ceramic refractories and abrasives (Chapter 13)
• Revised/expanded discussion on structural composites: laminar composites and sandwich panels (Chapter 15)
• New section on structure, properties, and applications of nanocomposite materials (Chapter 15)
• Revised/expanded discussion on recycling issues in materials science and engineering (Chapter 20)
• Numerous new and revised example problems. In addition, all homework problems requiring computations have been refreshed.
