In this vivid and comprehensible introduction to materials science, the author expands the modern concepts of metal physics to formulate basic theory applicable to other engineering materials, such as ceramics and polymers. Written for engineering students and working engineers with little previous knowledge of solid-state physics, this textbook enables the reader to study more specialized and fundamental literature of materials science. Dozens of illustrative photographs, many of them transmission electron microscopy images, plus line drawings, aid developing a firm appreciation of this complex topic. Hard-to-grasp terms such as "textures" are lucidly explained - not only the phenomenon itself, but also its consequences for the material properties. This excellent book makes materials science more transparent.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"This book is a translation of a German undergraduate textbook on Materials Science. ... The presentation and layout of the book is flawless, and the book has a nice coloured hard cover. ... aims at presenting an introduction to the physical basis of materials science. ... can be used as a `bible' for anyone working in the field of metallurgy. ... Especially in view of the vast amount of well-presented information on metallurgical aspects, this book is to be recommended for students or even researchers in this field." (Dirk Poelman, Physicalia, Vol. 57 (3), 2005)

"Gottstein ... aims to assist readers to understand material behavior by covering the field of knowledge from atomistic mechanisms to physical and mechanical properties. ... At the end there is an appropriate list of references ... and a very comprehensive index. The book is very well written and presented, and most of the illustrations are of good quality. ... Useful to graduate students, researchers, and faculty. An excellent acquisition for academic or industrial libraries. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through professionals." (T.Z. Kattamis, CHOICE, Vol. 42 (5), January, 2005)
