Description - Engineering Materials Volume 2 by Roger L. Timings
ENGINEERING MATERIALSVOLUME 2Second EditionR. L. TimingsEngineering Materials Volume 2 follows naturally on from its companion text Engineering Materials Volume 1. Together these texts provide a comprehensive and highly practical introduction to the basic science of materials technology for all engineering students. This volume is divided into three key sections covering metallic materials, non-metallic materials and materials in service. Part A - Metallic materials covers: alloy steels, the heat treatment of steels, welded and brazed metals and corrosion prevention. Part B - Non-metallic materials covers: ceramics and composites, polymeric (plastic) materials and synthetic adhesives. Part C - Materials in service covers: deformation and failure of materials, bearings and bearing materials, tool materials, electrical properties of materials and semiconductor materials and manufacturing processes.This new edition:is an ideal text for HNC/D and second-year degree courses in engineeringhas been redesigned in a larger format and all illustrations have been reviewed and redrawnhas been brought fully up to date with current examples and includes student-oriented features such as chapter summaries, self-assessment exercises and end-of-chapter questionsincludes a new chapter on polymeric materialsThis book leads naturally from the companion volume Engineering Materials Volume 1, intended as an introduction to the basic science of materials.
The two volumes should be studied together for a full understanding of the materials and processes used in the study of Engineering Materials.The broad coverage of this two-volume approach ensures that these core texts not only satisfy the requirements of technician engineers up to the highest level but also provide an excellent technical background for undergraduates studying for a degree in mechanical engineering, materials engineering or combined engineering.Also available:Engineering Materials, Volume 1Second edition0-582-31928-5Lecturers have praised the way Engineering Materials, Volume 1 tackles the subject material:"An excellent text with clear and concise diagrams.""The text is well produced and relatively easy for students to understand.""I find the book to be clear and well-written with good diagrams and data."
