Engineering Materials: Properties and Selection
Co-authored by Kenneth G. Budinski, a 34-year veteran in this field, and Michael K Budinski, his son, with 12 years 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 - the Sixth Edition 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. The younger Budinski contributed new perspectives in each chapter and improved the treatment of plastics and polymers.
