Solve, correct, and avoid critical material failure problems

Expertly analyze failures in common materials with Failure Analysis of Engineering Materials. This investigatory/analytical tool by Charles R. Brooks and Ashok Choudhury is a time-saving, one-stop reference for engineers. A soundly written introduction to principals and practices, it’s invaluable for failure inquiries involving metals, ceramics, plastics, composites, and electronic materials. You get:

* Practical, hands-on help with selecting and justifying analytic methods
* Numerous case studies that illustrate the use of analytical tools to determine the condition of the material
* Comparative fractographs to help you pinpoint fracture type.
