about

Engineering Materials 2, Fourth Edition,is one of the leading self-contained texts for more advanced students of materials science and mechanical engineering. It provides a concise introduction to the microstructures and processing of materials, and shows how these are related to the properties required in engineering design.

Each chapter is designed to provide the content of one 50-minute lecture. This updated version includes new case studies, more worked examples; links to Google Earth, websites, and video clips; and a companion site with access to instructors' resources: solution manual, image bank of figures from the book, and a section of interactive materials science tutorials. Other changes include an increased emphasis on the relationship between structure, processing, and properties, and the integration of the popular tutorial on phase diagrams into the main text.

The book is perfect as a stand-alone text for an advanced course in engineering materials or a second text with its companionEngineering Materials 1: An Introduction to Properties, Applications, and Design, Fourth Editionin a two-semester course or sequence.



  • Many new or revised applications-based case studies and examples
  • Treatment of phase diagrams integrated within the main text
  • Increased emphasis on the relationship between structure, processing and properties, in both conventional and innovative materials
  • Frequent worked examples to consolidate, develop, and challenge
  • Many new photographs and links to Google Earth, websites, and video clips
  • Accompanying companion site with access to instructors resources, including a suite of interactive materials science tutorials, a solutions manual, and an image bank of figures from the book
Dr. Jones is co-author of Engineering Materials 1 and 2 and lead author for the 3rd and 4th editions. He was the founder editor of Elsevier's journal Engineering Failure Analysis, and founder chair of Elsevier's International Conference on Engineering Failure Analysis series. His research interests are in materials engineering, and alo...
