Description Smith/Hashemi's Foundations of Materials Science and Engineering, 5/e provides an eminently readable and understandable overview of engineering materials for undergraduate students. This edition offers a fully revised chemistry chapter and a new chapter on biomaterials as well as a new taxonomy for homework problems that will help students and instructors gauge and set goals for student learning. Through concise explanations, numerous worked-out examples, a wealth of illustrations & photos, and a brand new set of online resources, the new edition provides the most student-friendly introduction to the science & engineering of materials.
The extensive media package available with the text provides Virtual Labs, tutorials, and animations, as well as image files, case studies, FE Exam review questions, and a solutions manual and lecture PowerPoint files for instructors.
Fully revised Chemistry chapter and new material on Biomaterials.
New/revised problems throughout.
A concise, readable style is used throughout; readers are given understandable explanations without the excessive detail other textbooks routinely include.
Over 1200 end-of-chapter problems and over 180 Materials Selection and Design problems.
Materials Selection and Design Problems in each chapter relate concepts more clearly to engineering practice, and help satisfy ABET requirements for design content in all engineering courses.
Learning Objectives outline major concepts at the start of each chapter to help students focus on the most essential big-picture topics.
Virtual labs, which provide interactive quizzes, animations, and video on essential material science processes are included on the book website along with lecture PPT files, sample syllabi, animations and tutorials.
