Engineering Materials: Properties and Selection
For courses in Metallurgy and Materials Science.
Co-authored by Kenneth G. Budinski and Michael K. Budinski, his son, with over 50 years of combined industry experience in the field, this practical, understandable introduction to engineering materials theory and industry-standard selection practices provides students with the working knowledge to (1) make an informed selection of materials for engineering applications and (2) correctly specify materials on drawings and purchasing documents. Encompassing all significant material systems metals, ceramics, plastics, and composites this text incorporates the most up-to-date information on material usage and availability, addresses the increasingly global nature of the field, and reflects the suggestions of numerous adopters of previous editions.

They are thermoplastics with good molding characteristics and thus find wide
application in injection-molded and vacuum-formed domestic articles. The
familiar roadside signs with fluorescent lights inside are usually thermoformed
Some are specially formulated for electrical applications, some are designed for
clear applications, and others are designed for mechanical applications. Grades
are available with glass or other reinforcement, and some grades are lubricated ...
7.9 Ceramics for Structural Applications It is doubtful if aluminum oxide ceramic
will ever be used for a wide-flange beam for use in a building, but the most-used
materials of any type of structural applications are ceramic types of material, ...
