CRC Materials Science and Engineering Handbook provides a convenient, single-volume source for physical and chemical property data on a wide range of engineering materials. As with the first three editions, this Fourth Edition contains information verified by major professional associations such as ASM International and the American Ceramic Society (ACerS). Patterned after the iconic CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics, this edition also:Offers a more streamlined presentation organized by categories of traditional and advanced materialsConverts chemical and physical property data from US customary units to SI units, improving the handbook's usefulness on a global scaleExpands coverage to include the latest material property data on low-dimensional carbons, two-dimensional (2D) nanomaterials, MAX phases, and amorphous metals
Featuring extensive references to contemporary research literature, CRC Materials Science and Engineering Handbook, Fourth Edition is an ideal starting point for scientists and engineers making, selecting, or evaluating materials.

"The broad scope-spanning metals, ceramics and glasses, polymers and composites, and the wide range of properties from the electronic and crystallographic to the `dirty' engineering properties such as impact energy and corrosion resistance-is a unique strength. The past history of this volume and its connection with, and verification of, the ASM and the ACerS build great confidence. ... I attach great significance to access to material property data that can be trusted. ... [This] handbook has in the past been a unique and highly valued resource for materials scientists and engineers. This new edition, with its helpfully reorganized data structure and its new sections on emerging materials, is timely and welcome."
-Michael F. Ashby, University of Cambridge, UK
"This book has wide range of useful data for materials, especially for structural materials. The authors have collected data on the basis of knowledge of chemistry. Chemistry is very important to understand materials. The authors also have collected data of materials recently developed. ... These data are helpful not only for students but also for people who want to start research in these areas."
-Kazuyuki Kakegawa, Professor Emeritus, Chiba University, Japan
"This book would be a useful addition to every well-stocked library. The overall quality of each chapter is enhanced by the excellent compilation of the data in well-laid-out tables. In conclusion, the resultant book is a joy to browse through and a "Bible" of useful technical information."
