And excellent, easily accessible but still quite comprehensive introduction into the field of mechanical engineering providing a readable and straightforward approach. This sixth release of the publication is including a completely chapter dedicated to the selection of the materials and the discussion of the newly introduced materials plus a new glossary of the key terminology used in the field of materials engineering. The text of the book has been completely rewritten providing the students and all other interested readers with the information relating to the broadly ranging area of the general materials engineering and associated manufacturing processes for more than four decades. The authors of the volume have made every effort to avoid using of the excessive professional jargon and mathematical complexity which is usually there in the majority of the other books, and they have still managed to retain the practical approach for which this publication is known. The readers will also note the increasing focus made on the selection of the materials. Though the main intention of the authors was to make a textbook fully meeting the requirements of the engineering syllabuses, the publication also provides a vary useful and valuable desktop reference for the practicing mechanical engineers who need a quick source of relevant technical information.
