The world around us is made up of components which have been designed for their specific purpose and manufactured from particular materials with that purpose in mind. Engineering materials are selected using criteria such as the expected mechanical loads in service, the nature of the loading, and the environment in which the component will operate. One of the most important considerations for the design and use of engineering components is the expected lifespan in service; this will impact upon factors such as safety, maintenance, manufacturing and replacement costs. It is therefore vital to make these kinds of predictions as accurately as possible at the outset. This fully searchable and cross-referenced CD-ROM offers the professional engineer, materials scientist or designer a tool for materials selection and design, using programming technology developed for, and compatible with, the "Cambridge Materials Selector".
