|Callister and Rethwisch's Fundamentals of Materials Science and Engineering third edition continues to take the integrated approach to the organization of topics. That is, one specific structure, characteristic, or property type at a time is discussed for all three basic material types-viz. metals, ceramics, and polymeric materials. This order of presentation allows for the early introduction of non-metals and supports the engineer's role in choosing materials based upon their characteristics.|
Now in its third edition,Fundamentals of Materials Science and Engineeringcontinues to take an integrated approach to the topic organization. One specific structure, characteristic, or property type at a time is discussed for all three basic material types--metals, ceramics, and polymers. This order of presentation allows for early introduction of non-metals and supports the engineer's role of choosing a material based on its characteristics.
This text treats the important properties of the three primary types of materials--metals, ceramics, and polymers--as well as composites, and the relationships that exist between the structural elements of these materials and their properties. Emphasis is placed on mechanical behavior and failure including, techniques that are employed to improve the mechanical and failure characteristics in terms of alteration of structural elements. Furthermore, individual chapters discuss each of corrosion, electrical, thermal, magnetic, and optical properties. New and cutting-edge materials are also discussed. Even if an instructor does not have a strong materials background (i.e., is from mechanical, civil, chemical, or electrical engineering, or chemistry departments), he or she can easily teach from this text. The material is not at a level beyond which the students can comprehend--an instructor would not have to supplement in order to bring the students up to the level of the text. Also, the author has attempted to write in a concise, clear, and organized manner, using terminology that is familiar to the students. Extensive student and instructor resource supplements are also provided.

This book is in depth, concise and really helped me get a handle on material engineering...I would highly recommend this book to anyone
This book is a required text for my Intro to Materials Science class, and the book covers most of what is covered in lecture. The 3d diagrams are amazing and help with understanding the actual positions of atoms in crystals. It clarifies a lot of my diagrams from lecture. The book is pretty easy to skip around and the topics are grouped well. I have the international version, but its the same as the US version, just paperback.
According to someone, the book is illegal in the United States. The book does have very useful information though for studying science and engineering.
amazing book great for engineering and the author makes chem understandable and isn't solely based on the chem aspects physical aspects. highly recommended!!
The international edition is NOT the exact same as the US Edition!! Pretty sure all text in the chapters is the same but almost ALL homework problems have different numbers than the original!!!! I turned in two homework assignments that were wrong and only got half credit. Do not buy if you have homework assigned in your class.
