Description:

Fully revised and updated, the second edition of this textbook provides a thorough coverage of the mechanical behaviour of traditional and modern materials. The authors take a balanced mechanical and materials approach to the important principles involved in the behaviour of metals, polymers, ceramics, composites, electronic materials, biomaterials and nanomaterials. As well as revised content throughout, and structure reorganization, there is also a new chapter on environmental effects, some more end-of-chapter exercises, new information on cellular materials, and the integration of biomaterials and electronic materials throughout. The book is fully illustrated to reinforce structure-property relationships, with the unifying thread being that the microstructure of material controls its mechanical behaviour. This textbook is suitable for undergraduate and graduate students in materials science and mechanical engineering. Further resources for this title, including lecture slides of select illustrations and solutions for some of the exercises, are available online at www.cambridge.org/97800521866758.
