Materials Science and Engineering: An Introduction, 9th Edition is written in a clear and concise way that continues to teach and inspire engineering students. This text makes it easy to understand metals, polymeric, ceramic materials, and composites in addition to teaching about the relationships that exist among the structural elements of those pertaining materials and their associated properties. Materials Science and Engineering: An Introduction, 9th Edition will help students through earning their engineering degree and starting off their career.
Purchasing this 9th edition gets you WileyPlus, which is access to an online version of the text where you’ll have the ability to take practice tests and allow you to work over tutorial questions that will take you step-by-step through complex questions with assistance if you need the extra help. A student will get varied questions over the material and feedback on their answers, which makes for a successful study session.
Materials Science and Engineering: An Introduction 9th edition features a new unique called Virtual Materials Science and Engineering, or VMSE for short, which is used to visualize and manipulate molecules in 3D. A selection of tutorial videos explained from an engineering student’s perspective. There is also clear and concise discussions over the body of the text which clearly conveys information to the student in a way that they’ll be able to understand. While the 9th edition has maintained teaching introductory level coverage that is often considered the most important by many engineers; but the body of text is still current and up to date. Students will read about all the latest developments that includes up-to-date content such as the advancement in ceramic and polymeric materials, as well as composites, optical fibers that’s used in communications, and the hard magnetic materials which consist of high energy. Students will find only the materials of importance in this textbook so they’re making the most out of their study sessions; brief topics throughout the book discuss applications of materials that are high interest and relate to topics in the books. Examples are “Shrink Wrap Polymer Films”, “Nanocomopsites in Tennis Balls”, and “Shape Memory Alloys.” just to name a few.
This Materials Science and Engineering: An Introduction, 9th edition was written by William D. Callister and David G. Rethwisch. It comes in three versions; A rental option which a student can pay to rent for 30 days and comes with the same features available to those who purchase the textbook. A digital option, which students can purchase with or without the WileyPlus which gives access to new features such as self-study tools. And a print option for those who like to own their textbooks, in which case there is a binder ready version and a hardcover version; Both of which come with WileyPlus. Whether you’re renting the book or purchasing the E-Text, with or without WileyPlus, you can view the text both online and offline as well as on a table t, iPad, computer, or any compatible smart phone.
