Elementary Materials Science covers the subject of materials science with few equations; it is intended primarily for students with limited science backgrounds who are interested in materials. The book also will be useful for non-technical professionals in the materials industry. The book's introductory chapter presents the basics underlying the study of materials: bonding, crystal structures, and amorphous materials. Other important aspects of materials science are covered in chapters devoted to phase relations, mechanical behavior, electrical behavior, magnetic behavior, and corrosion. Non-ferrous metals, iron and steel, ceramics, polymers, composites, and wood are each covered in separate chapters. Chapters on forming and shaping, and recycling round out this important basic volume on a growing interdisciplinary scientific field.
