Engineering Materials 1: An Introduction to Properties, Applications and Design
Butterworth-Heinemann, Apr 12, 2005 - Technology & Engineering - 448 pages
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.

Page xi - Try to do the examples from a particular chapter while this is still fresh in your mind. In this way you will gain confidence that you are on top of the subject. No engineer attempts to learn or remember tables or lists of data for material properties. But you should try to remember the broad...
