Discover why materials behave the way they do with ESSENTIALS OF MATERIALS SCIENCE AND ENGINEERING, 4TH Edition. This books focuses on materials engineering to explain how to process materials to suit your designs. Rather than simply memorizing facts or lumping materials into broad categories, you gain an understanding of the whys and hows behind materials science and engineering. This knowledge of materials science provides an important framework for understanding the principles used today to engineer materials. Detailed solutions and meaningful examples assist you in learning principles while significant end-of-chapter problems provide ample practice. MindTap digital resources help you learn on your terms with an interactive eBook and personalized learning tools.

"Overall, I like the approach. Starting the chapters with "Have you Wondered..." can engage the student in wanting to learn more. Overall, I like the type and number of problems at the end of the chapter. The text has very good coverage and explanation on phase transformations, especially for metals. The text approaches phase transformations from a theoretical point of view, as a starting point, which allows the students to gain an understanding of what is happening (and to some extent why) when metals are given different thermal/mechanical processes. The inclusion of chapters on specific metals continues the coverage to allow students to have an understanding as well as some specific knowledge on major alloy systems they are likely to encounter."
"Students often comment that the book is good and easy to understand. I agree. The pace is good and definition of terms is good as well as the examples. I do feel that the material is written in a clear and coherent fashion and that there is a general flow between topics and sections with nice subdivisions and such and good visual appeal. Illustrations are good and very clear. I find them very useful!"
"It is one of the best in this regard; thus I continue to use it. The book is an invaluable resource for the students. They [illustrations] are some of the best out there! I really cherish the design problem sections in each chapter. The illustrations are exceptional and I contend that it is a student-friendly resource. I have used Askeland's book more than any other in my 38 years of teaching."
"This book continues to be excellent and competitive."
