"Materials and Design: The Art and Science of Material Selection in Product Design...editor's choice." - Design Issues '..the book has very interesting and thorough information, and would be a very useful tool for an industrial designer.' Materials World, May 2004 'Both interesting and intriguing, the book should prove a valuable resource for those starting out in design or engineering ... also very fun to browse' --Science Magazine, June 13 2003 '...thoroughly "user-friendly" instructional guide to the scientific and systematic crafting of products from a variety of materials...strongly recommended as an extensive, superbly organized and presented, instructional resource and professional level reference.' --Wisconsin Bookwatch, February 2003 'This books sets out to bridge the gap between the technical language of the materials scientist and the qualitative language of the industrial designer... This is an excellent book and fills a significant gap in the education of industrial designers. I highly recommend it.' -- Professor Charles M. Falco, University of Arizona, Materials Today, April 2003 "aimed at... designers and engineering students - it is illuminating to see how they are trained to select materials. In particular, it is instructive to learn how different selection strategies are needed for different types of end product...try browsing through this attractive and informative book." - Chemistry in Britain, Feb 2003 "It is not often that I find it difficult to stop reading a book ... the word inspirational is used in various parts of (this) book -- and how appropriate this word is to this textbook ... For both students and designers, Materials & Design is a gold mine. In short, I thoroughly recommend this book" - Building Engineer, May 2003 "The book is highly recommended as a complementary text to more traditional academic books on materials and materials processes, and on their systematic selection. The book is competitively priced and represents excellent value for money." - K.L. Edwards, Univerity of Darby, 2003 "When I looked at this book for the first time, I could not stop myself from being amazed with its concept, form, design, and contents. ... It is a unique book that elucidates evolution of products and the materials from a historical to the modern perspective. ... I would strongly recommend this volume for design students and engineers, materials engineers, and mechanical engineers. - Corrosion June 2004 "This well-written and easy-to-read book serves as an introduction to materials for students, and for engineers. The book serves as a concise reference for materials and processes...While there are numerous books on materials technology and selection out there for the engineer, the integration of design principles with materials selection in this book make it fairly unique and a worthwhile reference for designers, engineers, and suppliers." -Adhesives & Sealants Newsletter, 2006From the Publisher:
The history of man is recorded, recovered and remembered through the designs he created and the materials he used. Materials are the stuff of design, and today is not the age of just one material, but of an immense range. Best selling author M. F. Ashby guides the reader through the process of selecting materials on the basis of their design suitability. He and co-author Kara Johnson begin with the assumption that products in a given market sector have little to distinguish between them in either performance or cost. When many technically near-equivalent products compete, market share is won or lost by the industrial design of a product: its visual and tactile attributes, the associations it carries, the image it creates in the consumer's mind and the quality of its interface with the use and the environment. Ashby and Johnson address the problem of selecting materials for industrial design from a unique viewpoint. They acknowledge that materials have two overlapping roles, in technical design and in industrial design. The technical designer has ready access to materials information. Industrial designers often do not have equivalent support. "Materials Selection in Industrial Design" presents groundbreaking new information that, on one hand introduces engineering students to the principles of Industrial Design and to the idea that the selection of materials can directly affect the aesthetic qualities of the object. On the other hand they introduce industrial design students and practising industrial designers to engineering parameters through an accessible and holistic approach. It offers easy to use systematic approach to the selection and uses of materials. Many excellent attribute 'maps' are included which enable complex comparative information to be readily grasped. It includes full colour photographs and illustrations throughout that aid the understanding of concepts.
