    Interdisciplinary Engineering Sciences introduces and emphasizes the importance of the interdisciplinary nature of education and research from a materials science perspective. This approach is aimed to promote understanding of the physical, chemical, biological and engineering aspects of any materials science problem. Contents are prepared to maintain the strong background of fundamental engineering disciplines while integrating them with the disciplines of natural science. It presents key concepts and includes case studies on biomedical materials and renewable energy.

    Aimed at senior undergraduate and graduate students in materials science and other streams of engineering, this book

    • Explores interdisciplinary research aspects in a coherent manner for materials science researchers
    • Presents key concepts of engineering sciences as relevant for materials science in terms of fundamentals and applications
    • Discusses engineering mechanics, biological and physical sciences
    • Includes relevant case studies and examples
