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.

Selection and use of engineering materials 3rd ed.
The first six chapters require little prior knowledge: A first-year grasp of materials and mechanics is enough. The chapters dealing with shape and multiobjective selection are a little more advanced but can be omitted on a first reading. As far as possible, the book integrates materials selection with other aspects of design; the relationships with the stages of design and optimization and with the mechanics of material, are develope d throughout.
At the teaching level, the book is intended as a text for third- and fourth-year engineering courses on Materials for Design: A 6- to lecture unit can be based on Chapters 1 through 6, 13, and 14; a full lecture course, with project work using the associated software, will require use of the entire book. Beyond this, the book is intended as a reference of lasting value.

However, the best way to use the charts that are a central feature of the book, for readers to have a clean copy on which they can draw, try out alternative selection criteria, write comments, and so forth; presenting the conclusion for a selected exercise is often most easily done in the same way. Although the book itself is copyrighted, instructors or readers area uthorized to makeu nlimited copies of thec hartsa nd to reproduce these for teaching purposes, provided a full reference to their source is given.
Many colleagues have been generous with discussion, criticism, and constructive suggestions.
Since publication of the third edition of this book, changes have occurred in the field of materials and their role in engineering, as well as in the way these subjects are taught in university- and college-level courses. There is increasing emphasis on materials efficiency—design that uses materials effectively and with as little damage to the environment as possible. All this takes place in a computer-based environment; teaching, too, draws increasingly on computerbased tools.
This new edition has been comprehensively revised and reorganized to address these. The presentation has been enhanced and simplified; the figures, many of them new, have been redrawn in full color; worked intext examples illustrate methods and results in chapters that are not themselves collections of case studies; and additional features and supplements have been added.

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, Materials Selection in Mechanical Design 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.
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.

Understanding materials, their properties and behavior is fundamental to engineering design, and a key application of materials science. Written for all students.
Sources of material property data are reviewed and approaches to their use are given. A well-established materials text with a design slant.
Materials Selection in Mechanical Design. Published by Elsevier Ltd. We need a way of surveying them to get a feel for the values that design-limiting properties can have.
One property can be displayed as a ranked list or bar chart, but it is seldom that the performance of a component depends on just one property. More often it is a combination of properties that matter: This suggests the idea of plotting one property against another, mapping out the fields in property space occupied by each material class and the subfields occupied by individual materials.
The resulting charts are helpful in many ways.
They condense a large body of information into a compact but accessible form; they reveal correlations between material properties that aid in checking and estimating data; and, as examined in later chapters, they become tools for materials selection, for exploring the effect of processing on properties, for demonstrating how shape can enhance structural efficiency, and for suggesting directions for further material development. Material Property Charts The ideas behind materials selection charts are described briefly in Section 4.
If, later, you use a particular chart, you should read the background to it, given here, to be sure of interpreting it correctly. As explained in the Preface, the charts can be copied and distributed for teaching purposes without infringing the copyright.
