Featuring in-depth discussions on tensile and compressive properties, shear properties, strength, hardness, environmental effects, and creep crack growth, "Mechanical Properties of Engineered Materials" considers computation of principal stresses and strains, mechanical testing, plasticity in ceramics, metals, intermetallics, and polymers, materials selection for thermal shock resistance, the analysis of failure mechanisms such as fatigue, fracture, and creep, and fatigue life prediction. It is a top-shelf reference for professionals and students in materials, chemical, mechanical, corrosion, industrial, civil, and maintenance engineering; and surface chemistry.

"The book is intended for a first-level graduate course on mechanical properties of materials. However; it would also be very useful for engineers and researchers without a background in material science, but who still need to learn about the mechanical properties of materials." - IEEE Electrical Insulation Magazine, Vol. 19, No. 6, Nov./Dec. 2003 Promo Copy
