Book Description:
Callister’s Materials Science And Engineering was originally written by Professor Callister, and has now been adapted into an Indian edition by R. Balasubramaniam. This eBook presents readers with clear explanations of important concepts. It focuses on three main types of materials and composites, namely metals, ceramics, and polymers. It goes on to describe the relationships between structural elements of materials and the properties they possess. The book also covers mechanical behaviour and failure, and provides ways in which performance can be improved. This adapted version of Callister’s Materials Science And Engineering has made updates to the previous topics covered in the book. The contents of this textbook are as per the syllabus of material science and engineering courses in many South Asian universities. The course structure of NITs, IITs, BITS Pilani have been taken into consideration in the sequencing of chapters in the book. Some of them are Imperfections in Solids, Properties of Metals, Polymer Structures, and Electrical Properties. Students who study the concepts in-depth, and are able to solve the questions listed in this book, will excel in this subject. Callister has provided the solutions to the problem sets in order for students to thoroughly understand each topic. Several examples placed throughout the book help in comprehending the application of these theories in the real world. Though this book serves as a textbook in engineering colleges, it can be used as a reference guide by researchers, and practicing engineers.
