Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 162661184X, Paperback)

The unique laboratory companion text Materials and Mechanics: Laboratory Experiments is comprised of an introductory chapter on safety protocols, followed by seven experiments in materials science engineering and solid mechanics. The book guides students through the experiments, and teaches them to calculate and report results and write follow-up reports.

Chapters include theory components with the equations students need to calculate different properties. In addition, all chapters feature in-class problems to increase comprehension and retention of information related to the experiments, and data sheets to be used for recording purposes in the laboratory.

Materials and Mechanics: Laboratory Experiments includes experiments on beam deflection, tensile testing, hardness testing, and impact testing. In addition, students will conduct experiments in heat treatment and qualitative metallographic analysis, torsion, and measurement of strain.

Materials and Mechanics: Laboratory Experiments supports the content of an in-class text, and clarifies and facilitates laboratory work. It can be used as a standalone textbook.
