Relating theory with practice to provide a holistic understanding of the subject and enable critical thinking, this book covers fundamentals of materials technology, microstructural development engineering metallurgy, non-metallic materials, and applications.

The book provides in-depth mathematical modeling for metals, polymers, ceramics, composites, and semiconductors. It features more than 250 solved problems and each chapter ends with exercise problems and answers to selected problems followed by references for additional reading. The text offers in-depth treatment of design against failure to help readers develop the skill of designing materials and components against failure. The book also includes design problems on corrosion prevention and optical and magnetic materials. Important materials properties data are provided, wherever applicable.

Aimed at engineering students and practicing engineers, this text provides readers with a deep understanding of the basics and a practical view of the discipline of materials technology.
