This text is designed for the introductory, one-semester course in materials science or as a reference for professional engineers. It addresses what is essential for all engineers to know about the relationship between structure and properties as affected by processing in order to obtain all-important required performance. The organization of topics reflects this key interrelationship, and presents those topics in an order appropriate for students in an introductory course to build their own mental-construct or hierarchy. Modern advances in polymers, ceramics, crystals, composites, semiconductors, etc. are discussed with an emphasis on applications in industry Key Features: ? Stresses the use of materials in practical applications using familiar analogies and real-world anecdotes to help explain new concepts ? Relates materials science to the chemistry, physics, and mathematics that students are taking concurrently ? Organizes the content into parts, and each chapter concludes with a summary to ensure the students? comprehension of key concepts ? Uses numerous illustrations to visualize new concepts, while tables collect important information in one convenient construct ? Instructor resources are available online and include solutions and Microsoft PowerPoint?? slides Contents : PART 1 : STRUCTURE ? Chapter 1: Materials: Building Blocks for Engineers ? Why Materials Define Civilization ? Materials Science Is Science Applied to Materials, Not New Science ? The Pervasive Role of Materials in Engineering ? The Engineering of Materials to Meet Society?s Needs: The Responsibility of Engineers ? Structure- Property-Processing - Performance Interdependence ? The Evolution of Materials over Time ? Materials Selection in Design: Every Engineer?s Challenge ? Summary ? Thinking Problems and Exploration Questions Chapter 2: The Periodic Table of Elements: The Key to Understanding Atomic Bonding and Types of Materials ? The Structure of the Atom: The Foundation of Matter ? The Importance of Stable Electron Configuration in Atoms ? The Periodicity of Atomic Structure and an Element?s Properties ? Why Atoms Form Bond with Other Atoms ? Primary Bonding Between Atoms ? Secondary Bonding Between Atoms and Between Molecules ? Mixed Bonding ? Defining Material Types from the Periodic Table ? Atomic Bonding Forces and Energies ? Summary ? Thinking Problems and Exploration Questions Chapter 3: Aggregation of Atoms: The Basis for Solid Materials ? States of Matter ? Why Atoms Aggregate to Form Solids Beyond Form Simple Bonds ? Aggregation with Metallic Bonding: Metal Crystal Structures ? Aggregation with Ionic Bonding: Ceramic Crystal Structures ? Aggregation with Covalent Bonding: Crystalline Carbon, High-Performance Ceramics, Metalloid Semiconductors, Silicates, and Polymer Macromolecules ? Aggregation of Macromolecules by Secondary Bonding to Form Polymers ? A System for Navigating Within Crystals: Miller Indices ? Noncrystalline Materials: Why and When They Occur ? Characterizing Crystalline Structures ? Summary ? Thinking Problems and Exploration Questions Chapter 4: Imperfections in Solid Crystalline Materials: Nature?s Better Alternative Than Perfection ? Why Nature Accepts (Even If She Does Not Prefer) Imperfection ? Point (Zero-Dimensional) Imperfections ? Negatives Versus Positives of Point Imperfections ? Line (One-Dimensional) Imperfections: Dislocations ? Negatives Versus Positives of Dislocations ? Area or Planar (Two-Dimensional) Imperfections ? Negatives Versus Positives of Planar Imperfections ? Volume (Three-Dimensional) Imperfection: Amorphism ? . Atomic Vibrations: Phonons ? Engineering with Imperfections in Materials ? Summary ? Thinking Problems and Exploration Questions Chapter 5: Amorphous and Semi-crystalline Materials ? Amorphous Versus Crystalline Printed Pages: 570. N° de ref. de la librería 74435
