Volume Highlights:
  • Discusses conceptual and configuration design of products and assemblies
  • Provides specific design/materials selection situations (such as designing for fatigue resistance, fracture toughness, corrosion and wear resistance, etc.)
  • Contains manufacturing aspects of design including effects of processing/manufacturing on materials and their influence on the design and materials selection process
  • Addresses metals, ceramics, polymers, and composites
  • Provides many case histories and examples
