Building on the extraordinary success of six best-selling editions, Bill Callister's new Seventh Edition of MATERIALS SCIENCE AND ENGINEERING: AN INTRODUCTION continues to promote student understanding of the three primary types of materials (metals, ceramics, and polymers) and composites, as well as the relationships that exist between the structural elements of materials and their properties. The leading source for learning materials science and engineering Bill Callister's text is the number one choice for learning materials science and engineering. Why? Because it delivers lucid explanations, thorough and up-to-date coverage, and outstanding art and learning resources. Now revised, this 7th Edition continues to promote student understanding of the three primary types of materials (metals, ceramics, and polymers) and composites, as well as the relationships between the structural elements of materials and their properties. New to the Seventh Edition A number of new "Materials of Importance" pieces (for most chapters). Concept Check questions throughout. Revised illustrations, now all in full-color to enhance visualization and convey realism. Expanded discussions on material types and general properties of materials (Chapter 1), and crystallographic directions and planes in hexagonal crystals (Chapter 3). New discussions on one-component (pressure-temperature) phase diagrams, compacted graphite iron, lost foam casting, fractography of ceramics, and magnetic anisotropy. Enhanced discussions on representations of polymer structures and defects in polymers, and a new discussion on permeability in polymers. Revised coverage of deformation of semicrystalline polymers and polymerization. Online Animations and Learning Modules The book companion site (www.wiley.com/college/callister) features learning modules with animations and 3-D projections that help students visualize challenging concepts and processes. The website also includes an interactive database of materials properties and costs.
