This book presents a comprehensive treatment of the principles of the mechanical behavior of materials. Appropriate for both undergraduate upper division and introductory graduate courses, Mechanical Behavior of Materials focuses on the relationship between macroscopic properties, material microstructure and fundamental concepts of bonding and crystal structure.
Careful integration of the mechanical and microscopic coverage of materials and material behavior.
Incorporates real life examples in every chapter
Contains helpful case studies to aid the student in relating to and understanding the topic, especially in "Failure Analysis" chapters.
