After decades in which metal alloys were the dominant materials used in engineering, recent developments have made other materials such as polymers and ceramics equal or superior in functionality or cost, for certain applications. Therefore, in revising their book, Structure and Properties of Alloys, the authors not only updated the text but broadened its scope by including new chapters on engineering polymers and on ceramics. The first six chapters present briefly the basic concepts of physical metallurgy. After considering the structure and properties of unalloyed metals, five chapters are devoted to the basic strengthening mechanisms of metals. The next 10 chapters cover the major nonferrous and ferrous alloys used industrially. Finally there are the two new chapters on nonmetallic materials. The book strives to cover the area between theoretical books and the practical handbooks so important to all engineers.
