Elementary Materials Science covers the subject of materials science without any equations; it is intended primarily for students with limited science backgrounds who are interested in materials.

The book also will be useful for non-technical professionals in the materials industry.

The book s introductory chapter presents the basics underlying the study of materials: bonding, crystal structures, and amorphous materials.

Other important aspects of materials science are covered in chapters devoted to phase relations, mechanical behaviour, electrical behaviour, magnetic behaviour, and corrosion.

Non-ferrous metals, iron and steel, ceramics, polymers, composites, and wood are each covered in separate chapters.

Chapters on forming and shaping, and recycling round out this important basic volume on a growing interdisciplinary scientific field.
