By (author) Smith, William F.
Smith's "Foundations of Materials Science and Engineering, 3/e" provides an eminently readable and understandable overview of engineering materials for undergraduate students. The author has carefully updated each chapter to reflect new technologies and materials types being used in industry. Through concise explanations, numerous worked-out examples, a wealth of illustrations & photos, and a brand new set of online resources, the new edition of Smith provides the most student-friendly introduction to the science and engineering of materials. The third edition features expanded chapter problem sets, which now include new Design-Oriented Problems, involving materials selection factors. Chapter Openers, also new to this edition, immediately engage students in each chapter's content through a highlighted, real-world application. The new Online Learning Center website will contain extensive student and instructor resources.
