Engineered Materials Handbook Desk Edition
This comprehensive reference book covers properties, selection, processing, and applications of the most widely used nonmetallic engineering materials. The focus is on two main groups of materials: polymeric materials and ceramics and glasses. Compiled from the four-volume Engineered Materials Handbook series, this single-volume desk edition provides basic property data and an outline of fabrication methods for each material. The “General Engineering Tables and Data” section includes a collection of engineering tables and data as well as a “Guide to Materials Selection” that gives comparative property data and provides an overview of methodologies for selecting materials for specific applications. Dedicated sections focus on plastics, elastomers, polymer-matrix composites, adhesives and sealants, and ceramics and glasses. Information on recycling, metallizing, and ceramic-matrix composites is provided. An extensive illustrated glossary of terms also is included.
