  • Contents

Whether you're a seasoned engineering professional, an engineer just getting into the world of engineering, a nontechnical person involved in some aspect of manufacturing a product, or an engineering student with an eye on a bright future in industry, you will benefit from the information in Materials Selection and Design.

Materials Selection and Design is a comprehensive reference on the basic concepts, methodologies, and information sources dealing with materials selection and its integration with engineering design processes. It makes the connection between design and materials engineering.

Contents include contributions from 100 experts from industry and universities involved with design, materials selection, and manufacturing.

Discusses conceptual and configuration design of products and assemblies Provides specific design/materials selection situations (such as designing for fatigue resistance, fracture toughness, corrosion and wear resistance, etc.)

%u2022 Contains manufacturing aspects of design including effects of processing/manufacturing on materials and their influence on the design and materials selection process
%u2022 Addresses metals, ceramics, polymers, and composites
%u2022 Provides many case histories and examplesMake the connection
%u2022 Product engineering/design, materials selection, and manufacturing are the result of a team effort in today's manufacturing world. Find out how all the pieces fit together.

%u2022 What is the role of the materials engineer in the design process?
%u2022 How does the materials engineer work with and support others throughout the design process?
%u2022 What is the relationship among design, materials selection, and process selection with respect to part/product function?
%u2022 What is the relationship of engineering design to other departments in a manufacturing company including marketing, industrial design, and manufacturing?
%u2022 How do manufacturing and assembly methods influence the properties and cost of a finished product?

These are just some of the questions that are answered in Materials Selection and Design.
