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.

CHARLES R. BROOKS is Professor of Metallurgical Engineering and Alumni Distinguished Service Professor Emeritus at the University of Tennessee. He has received several teaching awards, including the M.E. Brooks Distinguished Faculty Award of the College of Engineering and the Albert Easton White Teaching Award from ASM International. ...
