This ninth edition of Callister's "Materials Science and Engineering" promotes the understanding of the primary materials types, i.e. metals, polymers and ceramics as well as composites; it is also intended to promote the relationships existing between the sctructural elements of the above stated materials and their mechanical properties. The chapters of the book address such the important topics as atomic structure, interatomic bonding, mechanical properties of metallic materials, various imperfections in solid materials, failure, composite materials, electrical, thermal, magnetic and optical properties of the materials, structures, properties, applications and processing of ceramics, phase diagrams and transformations, material corrosion/degradation, mechanical properties of metals, dislocations and strengthening mechanisms etc.
