Mechanical behavior of materials
This book presents a comprehensive treatment of the principles of the mechanical behavior of materials. Appropriate for senior/ graduate courses, Mechanical Behavior of Materials, is distinguished by its focus on the relationship amongst macroscopic properties, material microstructure and fundamental concepts of bonding and crystal structure.Courtney's second edition brings the reader up-to-date on recent advances in improving and understanding materials behavior new edition contains new case studies, solved example problems and incorporates real life examples. The new edition also contains a new chapter (14) on Cellular Solids. The revision retains its extensive coverage of nonmetallics while increasing coverage of ceramics, composites, and polymerics that have emerged as structural materials in their own right and are now competitive with metals in many applications.
