Materials Engineering Books

Mat Engr
The list author says: "The world of materials engineering is broad, so this list only reflects my own flavor for the chemical/physicochemical aspects as it relates to the primary processing of materials and not necessarily to a particular class of material (i.e. metal, ceramic, polymer). These are a few of the books that I have either personally used in an academic setting or in industry."
ORGANIC CHEMISTRY-TEXT ONLY
ORGANIC CHEMISTRY-TEXT ONLY
"I used this book in the second semester course on synthesis. It's a great book and I wish I had used it when I had the first semester course - instead I was stuck with McMurry because I broke up the sequence."
Physical Chemistry
Physical Chemistry
Elementary Principles of Chemical Processes
Elementary Principles of Chemical Processes
"I used this text in a required material and energy balances course for chemical & material engineering students. Material and energy balances are fundamental when it comes to processing and this is one of the best books to learn those fundamentals."
Introduction to the Thermodynamics of Materials, Fourth Edition
Introduction to the Thermodynamics of Materials, Fourth Edition
"I used this book in an undergraduate course on chemical thermodynamics as applied to materials engineering. It is an excellent book on the subject. Well written with plenty of examples."
Introduction to Transport Phenomena in Materials Engineering
Introduction to Transport Phenomena in Materials Engineering
"I used this book in an undergraduate course on transport phenomena. In the same manner as the author's thermodynamics text, this book is well written with plenty of examples. I highly recommend as an introductory text and as a resource to the working professional."
Transport Phenomena in Materials Processing
Transport Phenomena in Materials Processing
"I also used this book in a transport phenomena class.  It is well written with excellent coverage of the fundamentals of transport phenomena. Just as with Gaskell, I recommend this as an introduction to the student as well as a working resource for the proffesional."
Transport and Chemical Rate Phenomena
Transport and Chemical Rate Phenomena
Rate Phenomena in Process Metallurgy
Rate Phenomena in Process Metallurgy
"I found this little gem in the engineering library and had to have a copy for myself. I use it all of the time. Often referenced classic text on rate phenomena in metallurgical processing.  Includes transport phenomena fundamentals in addition to material on process analysis and chemical rate phenomena as applied to metallurgy."
The Production of Inorganic Materials
The Production of Inorganic Materials
"I can't say enough good things about this text. It's well written and all there, from the fundamentals of chemical thermodynamics and kinetics to process engineering with applications to the production of inorganic materials. TMS currently publishes the updated version of this text called The Production and Processing of Inorganic Materials and the content is the same."
Powder Metallurgy Science
Powder Metallurgy Science
"I used this text in a powder processing course. The book is well written by Randall German, the authority on powder processing. This book made learning about all aspects of powder processing very enjoyable from powder synthesis, characterization, and powder blending to green body formation and sintering."
Injection Molding of Metals and Ceramics
Injection Molding of Metals and Ceramics
Principles and Prevention of Corrosion (2nd Edition)
Principles and Prevention of Corrosion (2nd Edition)
Corrosion Engineering
Corrosion Engineering
Organic Chemistry of Synthetic High Polymers
Organic Chemistry of Synthetic High Polymers
"Classic Text - If you want to know about the synthesis of polymers this is a great book. Strong on the organic aspects of polymer synthesis but a little lacking in the area of physical chemistry."
Principles of Polymer Systems
Principles of Polymer Systems
"I picked up this classic text a few years back. It is written similar in content to my Polymer Process Engineering by Grulke and I found that I used it just as much. When the Grulke book was a little lacking in a particular area I would refer to the Rodriguez book and vice versa."
Polymer Processing: Principles and Modeling
Polymer Processing: Principles and Modeling
"This is one of many books that I used in a graduate course on post polymerization processing - processing from the melt and solution states. Overall, great book it's focus is on the application of rheology and heat transfer to processing operations. However it is a little difficult unless you have some other sources to help guide you."
Polymer Process Engineering
Polymer Process Engineering
"This is one of many books that I used in a graduate course on post polymerization processing - processing from the melt and solution states (i.e. injection molding, extrusion, film blowing, fiber spinning, blow molding etc...). While not an official text for the course I referred to it frequently for its fundamental aspects pertaining to the various processing operations."
Fundamentals of Polymer Processing
Fundamentals of Polymer Processing
"This is one of many books that I used in a graduate course on post polymerization processing - processing from the melt and solution states (i.e. injection molding, extrusion, film blowing, fiber spinning, blow molding etc...). While not an official text for the course I referred to it frequently for its fundamental aspects pertaining to the various processing operations."
Understanding Rheology (Topics in Chemical Engineering)
Understanding Rheology (Topics in Chemical Engineering)
"This is one of many books that I used in a graduate course on post polymerization processing - processing from the melt and solution state. It covered the rheological portion of the course. I found the book to be very well written and if you have taken a course on fluid mechanics or transport phenomena you will have no problem learning about the additional aspects of polymer rheology."
Principles of Ceramics Processing, 2nd Edition
Principles of Ceramics Processing, 2nd Edition
"Good fundamental book on ceramic processing. I did not use it in a course but I can see where it would be very easy to develop a course around this book. Likewise, it would be of great value to a person working in any aspect of ceramics processing."
Fundamentals of Ceramic Powder Processing and Synthesis
Fundamentals of Ceramic Powder Processing and Synthesis
"I used this book in a ceramics course. Very well written and thorough. I value this book the most for it's chapters on powder sythesis not because the rest of the book is not equally as good, but because the author does such excellent job covering powder sythesis."
Chemical Reaction Engineering, 3rd Edition
Chemical Reaction Engineering, 3rd Edition
"I had not necessarily taken a formal course on chemical reaction engineering but found that most of my other books referenced this classic. I picked up a copy and found it very easy to read and learn from. I refer to it all of the time."
