Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0408027304, Paperback)

* Is written for engineers - people who make things - 'products' are what materials are for and they come first in this book. * Reorganises materials science in a new and original way - properties are for service and for production as well as for
understanding. * Is an Open University self-study text in lucid style and with a wealth of exercises (with answers). * Stresses the generality of materials behaviour over all classes of material while still teaching the distinctive natures of metals,
polymers, ceramics and composites. * Provides a rich learning environment covering mechanical, electrical and chemical characteristics of materials. * Introduces the technology and science of materials at university level. * Appeals through its two colour presentation and generous illustration.
