Mechanical Behavior of Materials: Deformation and Designis the first textbook to adopt a design-led approach to the teaching of mechanical behavior of materials in which the underlying fundamental science is presented in the context of design. This approach has been found to help motivate and engage students through real-life case studies and illustrative applications. The book also includes three Guided Learning Units, which are essentially special self-teaching tutorials on certain difficult topics. In addition to the design-led approach, Mishra and Charit cover newer content not found in other textbooks, such as recent advances in microstructural characterization techniques and up-to-date presentation of fundamentals that link the microstructure of engineering materials with realistic mechanical response.

  • Relates microstructural distribution in engineering materials to mechanical behavior and failure
  • Presents Guided Learning Units on strengthening mechanisms
  • Discusses the deviation of engineering microstructure from ideal microstructure
  • Contains examples of mechanical properties that are brought together under the basic microstructural framework
  • Provides aspects of design-led and systems approaches to materials that are integrated in one book
  • Includes an online solutions manual, image bank, and lecture slides that are available for instructors
