Description

Callister's Materials Science And Engineering is a textbook designed for engineering students to teach them fundamental theories in this field. The book is paired with a CD-ROM, thus helping students visualize each concept. Professionals can use this book and CD as a reference source.

Summary Of The Book

Callister's Materials Science And Engineering was originally written by Professor Callister, and has now been adapted into an Indian edition by R. Balasubramaniam. This book presents readers with clear explanations of important concepts. It focuses on three main types of  materials and composites, namely metals, ceramics, and polymers. It goes on to describe the relationships between structural elements of materials and the properties they possess. The book also covers mechanical behavior and failure, and provides ways in which performance can be improved.

This adapted version of Callister's Materials Science And Engineering has made updates to the previous topics covered in the book. The contents of this textbook are as per the syllabus of material science and engineering courses in many South Asian universities. The course structure of NITs, IITs, Anna University, and Jawaharlal Nehru Technical University have been taken into consideration in the sequencing of chapters in the book. Some of them are Imperfections in Solids, Properties of Metals, Polymer Structures, and Electrical Properties. Students who study the concepts in-depth, and are able to solve the questions listed in this book, will excel in this subject. The author has provided the solutions to the problem sets in order for students to thoroughly understand each topic. Several examples placed throughout the book help in comprehending the application of these theories in the real world. Though this book serves as a textbook in engineering colleges, it can be used as a reference guide by researchers, and practising engineers.

Callister's Materials Science And Engineering comes with a CD-ROM package. This interactive mode of learning makes it easier for students to grasp the subject. The last five chapters, solutions to selected questions, and answers to concept check questions are provided in the CD. Visualization of the concepts gives students an added advantage in understanding material science and engineering.

Lengthy and tedious explanation in throughout the book which make you uncomfortable

better to purchase original international edition rather than edited indian edited version.Too much of explanation is not required in many areas in the book and he is not up to the point.Repeating information many times in the book leads the book became bulky.Need year to read......
