Understanding materials, their properties and behavior is fundamental to engineering design, and a key application of materials science. Written for all students of engineering, materials science and design, this book describes the procedures for material selection in mechanical design in order to ensure that the most suitable materials for a given application are identified from the full range of materials and section shapes available. Extensively revised for this fourth edition, Materials Selection in Mechanical Design is recognized as one of the leading materials selection texts, and provides a unique and genuinely innovative resource. Features new to this edition * Material property charts now in full color throughout * Significant revisions of chapters on engineering materials, processes and process selection, and selection of material and shape while retaining the book's hallmark structure and subject content * Fully revised chapters on hybrid materials and materials and the environment * Appendix on data and information for engineering materials fully updated * Revised and expanded end-of-chapter exercises and additional worked examples Materials are introduced through their properties; materials selection charts (also available on line) capture the important features of all materials, allowing rapid retrieval of information and application of selection techniques. Merit indices, combined with charts, allow optimization of the materials selection process. Sources of material property data are reviewed and approaches to their use are given. Material processing and its influence on the design are discussed. New chapters on environmental issues, industrial engineering and materials design are included, as are new worked examples, exercise materials and a separate, online Instructor's Manual. New case studies have been developed to further illustrate procedures and to add to the practical implementation of the text. * The new edition of the leading materials selection text, now with full color material property charts * Includes significant revisions of chapters on engineering materials, processes and process selection, and selection of material and shape while retaining the book's hallmark structure and subject content * Fully revised chapters on hybrid materials and materials and the environment * Appendix on data and information for engineering materials fully updated * Revised and expanded end-of-chapter exercises and additional worked examples

Materials are the stuff of design. From the very beginning of human history, materials have been taken from the natural world and shaped, modified, and adapted for everything from primitive tools to modern electronics. This renowned book by noted materials engineering author Mike Ashby and industrial designer Kara Johnson explores the role of materials and materials processing in product design, with a particular emphasis on creating both desired aesthetics and functionality. The new edition features even more of the highly useful "materials profiles" that give critical design, processing, performance and applications criteria for each material in question. The reader will find information ranging from the generic and commercial names of each material, its physical and mechanical properties, its chemical properties, its common uses, how it is typically made and processed, and even its average price. And with improved photographs and drawings, the reader is taken even more closely to the way real design is done by real designers, selecting the optimum materials for a successful product. The best guide ever published on the on the role of materials, past and present, in product development, by noted materials authority Mike Ashby and professional designer Kara Johnson--now with even better photos and drawings on the Design Process Significant new section on the use of re-cycled materials in products, and the importance of sustainable design for manufactured goods and services Enhanced materials profiles, with addition of new materials types like nanomaterials, advanced plastics and bio-based materials

Selection and Use of Engineering Materials, Second Edition covers the substantial development in the selection and application of materials and of associated materials. This book is organized into four parts encompassing 20 chapters that also consider the advances in materials databases and computer programs. The first part deals with the motivation, cost basis, service requirements, failure analysis, specifications, and quality control of engineering materials. The second part describes the mechanical properties of these materials, including static strength, toughness, stiffness, fatigue, creep, and temperature resistance. The third part examines the selection requirements for surface durability, such as corrosion and wear resistance. This part also explores the relationship between materials selection and materials processing, as well as the formalization of selection procedures. The fourth part provides some case studies in materials selection. This book will prove useful to materials scientists and practicing engineers.

New materials enable advances in engineering design. This book describes a procedure for the selection of materials in mechanical design, allowing the most suitable materials for a given application to be identified from the full range of materials and section shapes available. The approach is novel, emphasising design with materials rather than materials "science". The materials are introduced through their properties and materials selection charts highlight the important features of all materials, aiding materials and process selection. With case studies and a list of further reading at the end of each chapter, this book makes both an ideal text for final year undergraduates studying "Materials for Design" courses, as well as a reference text of lasting value.
