This book continues to provide engineers with a strong understanding of the three primary types of materials and composites, the relationships between the structural elements and properties. The relationships among processing, structure, properties and performance components for steels, glass-ceramics, polymer fibers and silicon semiconductors are explored throughout the chapters. The discussion of the construction of crystallographic directions in hexagonal unit cells is expanded. At the end of each chapter, engineers will also find revised summaries and new equation summaries to reexamine key concepts.
