TITLE: CALLISTER MATERIAL SCIENCE AND ENGINEERING 2nd EDITION
AUTHOR: WILLIAM D CALLISTER , R BALASUBRAMANIAM
BOOK DESCRIPTION: Building on the success of previous edition, this book continues to provide engineers with a strong understanding of the three primary types of materials and composites, as well as the relationships that exist between the structural elements of materials and their properties. With improved and more interactive learning modules, this textbook provides a better visualization of the concepts. Apart from serving as a text book for the basic course in materials science and engineering in engineering colleges, the book covers topics that can be used to advantage even in specialized courses pertaining to engineering materials. The book can be consulted as a good reference source for important properties of a wide variety of engineering materials, which benefits a wide spectrum of future engineers and scientists. ·

This book is an adapted version of the original Callister's materials science and engineering which has already proved it's metal in the world.It incorporates many features such as
1.The content in this book is based on what is taught in most Indian and South Asian Universities.
2.Updated discussions on metals,ceramics and polymers.
3.Concept check questions that test conceptual understanding.
4.Numerous examples throughout the chapters that show how the material is applied in the real world.
5.CD-ROM package is available with the book which contains The Virtual Materials Science and Engineering software program,which consists of interactive simulations and animations that enhance learning of key concepts,answers to concept check questions,solutions to selected problems and Chapters 19-23 are contained in the CD for interested readers.Overall this book would help readers gain knowledge and build there understanding of this course.
