No other book in the field has stood the test of time as Degarmo. Now the new tenth edition continues the tradition by presenting a solid introduction to the fundamentals of manufacturing along with the most up-to-date information. In order to make the concepts easier to understand, a variety of engineering materials are discussed as well as their properties and means of modifying them. Manufacturing processes and the concepts dealing with producing quality products are also covered.
