Callister's Materials Science And Engineering is a textbook designed for engineering students to teach them fundamental theories in this field. The book is paired with a CD-ROM, thus helping students visualize each concept. Professionals can use this book and CD as a reference source.

Summary Of The Book

Callister's Materials Science And Engineeringwas originally written by Professor Callister, and has now been adapted into an Indian edition by R. Balasubramaniam. This book presents readers with clear explanations of important concepts. It focuses on three main types of materials and composites, namely metals, ceramics, and polymers. It goes on to describe the relationships between structural elements of materials and the properties they possess. The book also covers mechanical behavior and failure, and provides ways in which performance can be improved.

This adapted version ofCallister's Materials Science And Engineeringhas made updates to the previous topics covered in the book. The contents of this textbook are as per the syllabus of material science and engineering courses in many South Asian universities. The course structure of NITs, IITs, Anna University, and Jawaharlal Nehru Technical University have been taken into consideration in the sequencing of chapters in the book. Some of them are Imperfections in Solids, Properties of Metals, Polymer Structures, and Electrical Properties. Students who study the concepts in-depth, and are able to solve the questions listed in this book, will excel in this subject. The author has provided the solutions to the problem sets in order for students to thoroughly understand each topic. Several examples placed throughout the book help in comprehending the application of these theories in the real world. Though this book serves as a textbook in engineering colleges, it can be used as a reference guide by researchers, and practising engineers.

Callister's Materials Science And Engineeringcomes with a CD-ROM package. This interactive mode of learning makes it easier for students to grasp the subject. The last five chapters, solutions to selected questions, and answers to concept check questions are provided in the CD. Visualization of the concepts gives students an added advantage in understanding material science and engineering.
