A one-stop Desk Reference, for engineers involved in the use of engineered materials across engineering and electronics; this is a book that will not gather dust on the shelf. It brings together the essential professional reference content from leading international contributors in the field. Material ranges from basic to advanced topics including materials and process selection; and explanations of properties of metals, ceramics, plastics and composites

(BQ) Part 2 book "Engineering materials" has contents: Creep deformation and fracture, oxidation and corrosion; friction, abrasion and wear; materials and energy in car design; case studies in friction and wear; wet corrosion of materials,... and other contents.
(BQ) Part 1 book "Engineering materials 2" has contents: Metals, metal structures, equilibrium constitution and phase diagrams, case studies in phase diagrams, the driving force for structural change, case studies in phase transformations, the light alloys, ceramics and glasses, the mechanical properties of ceramics,... and other contents.
(BQ) Part 2 book "Engineering materials 2" has contents: Polymers, the structure of polymers, mechanical behaviour of polymers, design with materials, case studies in design, production, forming and joining of polymers, Special topic - Wood.
Innovation in engineering often means the clever use of a new material - new to a
particular application, but not necessarily (although sometimes) new in the sense of
‘recently developed’. Plastic paper clips and ceramic turbine-blades both represent
attempts to do better with polymers and ceramics what had previously been done well
with metals. And engineering disasters are frequently caused by the misuse of
Gray iron is the most versatile of all foundry metals. The high carbon
content is responsible for ease of melting and casting in the foundry and for ease of
machining in subsequent manufacturing. The low degree or absence of shrinkage and
high fluidity provide maximum freedom of design for the engineer. By suitable
adjustment in composition and selection of casting method, tensile strength can be
varied from less than 20,000 psi to over 60,000 psi and hardness from 100 to 300 BHN
in the ascast
condition. By subsequent heat treatment, the hardness can be increased
to H Rc 60....
(BQ) Part 1 book "Engineering fundamentals" has contents: General health and safety (engineering), establishing effective working relationships, handling engineering information, engineering materials and heat treatment, engineering drawing, measuring.
(BQ) Part 2 book "Mechanical engineers data handbook" has contents: Manufacturing technology, engineering materials, engineering measurements, general data, general information on metal cutting, limits and fits, british standard specification of steels, miscellaneous metals.
There are several good mechanical engineering data books on the market but these tend to be very bulky and
expensive, and are usually only available in libraries as reference books.
The Mechnical Engineer’s Data Handbook has been compiled with the express intention of providing a
compact but comprehensive source of information of particular value to the engineer whether in the design office,
drawing office, research and development department or on site.
Encyclopedia of Materials Characterization is a comprehensive volume on analytical techniques used in materials science for the characterization of surfaces, interfaces and thin films. This flagship volume in the Materials Characterization Series is a unique, stand-alone reference for materials science practitioners, process engineers, students and anyone with a need to know about the capabilities available in materials analysis. An encyclopedia of 50 concise articles, this book will also be a practical companion to the forthcoming books in the Series.
There is a vast multitude of materials with strongly differing properties. A
copper wire, for instance, can be bent easily into a new shape, whereas a
rubber band will snap back to its initial form after deformation, while the
attempt to bend a glass tube ends with fracture of the tube. The strongly
differing properties are reflected in the application of engineering materials –
you would neither want to build cars of glass nor rubber bridges. The multitude
of materials enables the engineer to select the best-suited one for any
The great advantage of steel as an engineering material is its versatility, which arises from the fact that its properties can be controlled and changed by heat treatment. Thus, if steel is to be formed into some intricate shape, it can be made very soft and ductile by heat treatment; on the other hand, heat treatment can also impart high strength.
This series of books, which is published at the rate of about one per year, addresses fundamental problems in materials science. The contents cover a broad range of topics from small clusters of atoms to engineering materials and involve chemistry, physics, and engineering, with length scales ranging from Ångstromsup to millimeters.

Engineering of nanophase materials and devices is of vital interest in electronics, semiconductors and optics, catalysis, ceramics and magnetism. Research associated with nanoparticles has widely spread and diffused into every field of scientific research, forming a trend of nanocrystal engineered materials.
