There are books aplenty on materials selection criteria for engineering design. Most cover the physical and mechanical properties of specific materials, but few offer much in the way of total product design criteria. This innovative new text/reference will give the Big picture view of how materials should be selected not only for a desired function but also for their ultimate performance, durability, maintenance, replacement costs, and so on. Even such factors as how a material behaves when packaged, shipped, and stored will be taken into consideration. For without that knowledge, a design engineer is often in the dark as to how a particular material used in particular product or process is going to behave over time, how costly it will be, and, ultimately, how successful it will be at doing what is supposed to do. This book delivers that knowledge.
Broad overview of the role of materials engineering in product design and manufacturing
Offers a brief but comprehensive review of major materials functional groups (mechanical, electrical, thermal, chemical) by major material categories (metals, polymers, ceramics, composites) and their typical applications
Invaluable guidance on materials selection criteria at early design stage, including such factors as functionality, durability, and, most importantly, availability
Provides understanding of failure and reliability analysis in total materials selection process
Insight into Life Cycle factors that affect choice of materials beyond simple performance specs, including manufacturability, machinability, shelf life, packaging, and even shipping characteristics
Unique help on writing materials selection specifications
Ample references to industry standards, compliance codes, regulatory issues and references for further study and information.
