Fundamentals of Materials Engineering - A Basic Guide is a helpful textbook for readers learning the basics of materials science. This book covers important topics and fundamental concepts of materials engineering including crystal structure, imperfections, mechanical properties of materials, polymers, powder metallurgy, corrosion and composites. The authors have explained the concepts in an effective way and by using simple language for the benefit of a broad range of readers. This book is also beneficial to the students in engineering courses at B.Sc, M.Sc, and M.Tech. levels.


In my opinion, a Materials Engineering textbook must include important topics like atomic bonding, crystal structure, imperfections, mechanical properties, polymers, composites, powder metallurgy in order to understand the basic phenomena of materials. This book covers all the above mentioned basic topics and helps students understand the structure-property relationship, characterization techniques, and applications in detail. This book can be proposed to use as an introductory course for one or two-semester in the Materials Engineering/Science program. This book is designed for all the Materials Engineering/Science students at the bachelor's, masters and PhD levels.

This book consists of 8 chapters in total related to atomic bonding, crystal structures, imperfections, mechanical properties of materials, polymers, powder metallurgy, corrosion, and composites. The main aim of the textbook is to maintain proper equilibrium between simple explanation and subject knowledge and we are successful in doing so. This book is meant for beginners who want to learn basic concepts of materials engineering. This book describes each topic in a simple and effective way. The authors of the book are more experienced in the field of materials engineering and published many research articles, books, book chapters in various reputed journals and publishers. Apart from material engineers, this book is also intended to be useful for metallurgists, chemists.
