This revised third edition of a bestselling metallurgy text examines the behavior of materials under stress and their reaction to a variety of hostile environments. It covers the entire scope of mechanical metallurgy, from an understanding of the continuum description of stress and strain, through crystalline and defect mechanisms of flow and fracture, and on to a consideration of major mechanical property tests and the basic metalworking process. It has been updated throughout, SI units have been added, and end-of-chapter study questions are included.

Every time I read this book, find something new. Exceptionally well written book. I do not think that there is any other book which is covering these topics in such simple manner. It is highly recommended for all metallurgists and mechanical engineers. Hats off to Mr. G. E. Dieter.
it is my favourate book
