In the fully revised and expanded new edition of this established undergraduate text, Vernon John deals with the basic principles of both materials science and materials engineering in a clear and accessible manner. He provides students with a sound understanding of materials, their characteristic properties, the main processing methods and an introduction to the methods used for the selection of the most suitable materials to meet particular design requirements.
Updated throughout, and with new diagrams and photographs in this fourth edition, the book continues to be a popular text: with students and lectures alike.

'In this fully revised and expanded new edition, the author deals with the basic principles of both materials science and materials engineering in a clear and accessible manner.' - Materials World 'As you would expect, the book's detailed content has changed and expanded over the years to keep pace with advances in technology and academic undergraduate course curricula...In the latest edition, Vernon John has managed to sensitively adapt the text by retaining most of the core material and adapting the chapter layouts, with learning objectives and summaries at the beginning and end of each chapter respectively'.
