Engineering Materials Science – Milton Ohring – 1st Edition


’s Engineering Materials Science integrates the nature and modern applications of all classes of engineering materials. This comprehensive, introductory textbook will provide undergraduate engineering with the fundamental background needed to understand the science of structure-property relationships, as well as address the engineering concerns of materials selection in , processing materials into useful products, andhow material degrade and fail in service. Specific topics include: physical and electronic structure; and kinetics; processing; mechanical, electrical, magnetic, and optical properties; degradation; and failure and reliability. The offers superior coverage of electrical, optical, and magnetic materials than competing text.

The author has taught introductory courses in material science and engineering both in academia and industry (AT&T Bell Laboratories) and has also written the well-received book, “The Material Science of Thin Films” (Academic Press).
