Item description for Mechanical Behaviour of Engineering Materials: Metals, Ceramics, Polymers, and Composites by J. Roesler...
How do engineering materials deform when bearing mechanical loads? To answer this crucial question, the book bridges the gap between continuum mechanics and materials science. The different kinds of material deformation (elasticity, plasticity, fracture, creep, fatigue) are explained in detail. The book also discusses the physical processes occurring during the deformation of all classes of engineering materials (metals, ceramics, polymers, and composites) and shows how these materials can be strengthened to meet the design requirements. It provides the knowledge needed in selecting the appropriate engineering material for a certain design problem. The reader will thus learn how to critically employ design rules and thus to avoid failure of mechanical components.
'Mechanical Behaviour of Engineering Materials' is both a valuable textbook and a useful reference for graduate students and practising engineers.

required text Feb 24, 2008
a decent book. I have had worse required text. Makes a good accompaniment to lecture. The class was MSE 312 at Boise State University. The book would not be a great learning tool by itself, but does provide good reference and plenty of applicable tables and data.
