Book Description

December 10, 2007 0470125373 978-0470125373 3
Callister and Rethwisch’s Fundamentals of Materials Science and Engineering third edition continues to take the integrated approach to the organization of topics.  That is, one specific structure, characteristic, or property type at a time is discussed for all three basic material types—viz. metals, ceramics, and polymeric materials.  This order of presentation allows for the early introduction of non-metals and supports the engineer’s role in choosing materials based upon their characteristics.

4.0 out of 5 stars Covers a lot of material, maybe too much May 4, 2010
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book covers tons of material. It was part of 2 classes I took, and I've referred to it in several others. It has content on almost everything that will be covered in an undergraduate materials science program, then a little bit more. The amount of coverage it gives for each topic though varies quite a bit. I found its discussion on the various microstructures of steel very useful on multiple occasions. The section on fracture though left a little bit to be desired, the section discussing brittle fracture is only about half a page. It tries to condense what would probably be 3 or 4 whole chapters in a mechanical properties textbook (on fracture, fatigue, creep, impact testing, stress concentration) into a single 50 page chapter. Overall though, I found it to be a good intro textbook and a good reference for concepts.

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent, not very clear October 27, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The text is somewhat confusing. The diagrams are too small and any attempt to magnify results in grainy pictures. Additionally the lack of page numbers makes it difficult to follow along with a class. Locations do not help at all. The formatting seems to be off and can lack cohesiveness unless you can compare it to the hard-copy version.

Needed this book for a class. I didn't find it to be particularly helpful or useless. Just about average. Yup.

5.0 out of 5 stars Satisfactory! February 10, 2012
By Adam
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The book arrived a few days after I made my order and in the stated condition. Overall, I am satisfied with this product. In addition, for those of you buying this book, the questions expect a foundation in algebra and trigonometry and the equations are provided in the chapters. What upsets me is that the author never bothers to explain the proofs for the equations or at least where they came from. But the book also has some useful information and will provide you with basic skills in materials engineering if you read the chapters and answer the questions, which aren't that difficult to begin with.
