Book Description:
Engineering Materials: An Introduction to their
Properties and Applications,
volume 1 and 2 by
Michael F. Ashby, David R H Jones gives a broad introduction
to the properties of materials used in engineering
applications and is intended to provide a course in
engineering materials for civil, mechanical engineering
students. Engineering accidents occur by the misuse of
materials, and so it is vital that every engineer should
understand the properties of these materials, their
limitations and how to select materials which best fit the
demands of his design.

The chapters in this eBook are arranged in group describing a
particular class of properties: the Elastic Moduli; the
Fracture Toughness; Resistance to Corrosion and so on. Each
chapter starts by defining the property, describing how it is
measured and providing a table of data for solving problems
involving the selection and use of materials. Then the basic
science underlying each property is examined to provide the
knowledge with which to design materials with better
properties. Every chapter ends with a case study of practical
application, and each chapter ends with a list of books for
further reading. To understand more, there are a good number
of examples at the end of the book intended to consolidate or
develop a particular point covered in this ebook.
