The Nuts and Bolts of Materials Science
A new introductory textbook of materials science for engineers.
But: Does anyone need yet another book of this kind?
The short answer is: Yes, and here is why:
light in weight but not lightweight.
It presents a compact, coherent narrative of the essentials of materials science for a beginning engineer, covering those parts of the field which no engineering student can do without.
At the same time, it aims to provide a solid foundation for students who wish to make materials science and engineering their profession.
