1 Review
Widely adopted around the world, this is a core materials science and mechanical engineering text. Engineering Materials 1 gives a broad introduction to the properties of materials used in engineering applications. With each chapter corresponding to one lecture, it provides a complete introductory course in engineering materials for students with no previous background in the subject. Ashby & Jones have an established, successful track record in developing understanding of the properties of materials and how they perform in reality.

* One of the best-selling materials properties texts; well known, well established and well liked
* New student friendly format, with enhanced pedagogy including many more case studies, worked examples, student questions, full instructor's manual and online tutorial material for adopting tutors
* World-renowned author team
