About this Textbook

This book offers a strong introduction to fundamental concepts on the basis of materials science. It conveys the central issue of materials science, distinguishing it from merely solid state physics and solid state chemistry, namely to develop models that provide the relation between the microstructure and the properties.
The book is meant to be used in the beginning of a materials science and engineering study as well as throughout an entire undergraduate and even graduate study as a solid background against which specialized texts can be studied.  Topics dealt with are "crystallography", "lattice defects", "microstructural analysis", "phase equilibria and transformations" and "mechanical strength". After the basic chapters the coverage of topics occurs to an extent surpassing what can be offered in a freshman's course.

 

About the author
Prof. Mittemeijer is one of the top scientists in materials science, whose perceptiveness and insight have led to important achievements. This book witnesses of his knowledge and panoramic overview and profound understanding of the field. He is a director of the Max Planck Institute for Metals Research in Stuttgart.

About the authors

Eric Jan Mittemeijer was born in 1950 in Haarlem, The Netherlands. He studied "chemical technology", with specialization physical chemistry, at the Delft University of Technology and acquired his "ingenieur (= Ir.)" degree (comparable to a M.Sc. degree) in 1972 and his Ph.D. degree in 1978. From 1985 till 1998 he was full Professor of Solid State Chemistry at the Delft University of Technology. Since 1998 he is Director at the Max Planck Institute for Metals Research in Stuttgart in conjunction with a full Professorship in Materials Science at the University of Stuttgart. He is Dean of the Study Course Materials Science of the University of Stuttgart and Speaker of the International Max Planck Research School on Advanced Materials. He leads a research department in the field of Phase Transformations. He has (co-)authored more than 580 scientific papers in international scientific journals and has received a number of honours for his scientific work.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This book is intended as an introduction to the fundamentals of materials science, with a strong emphasis on metallic materials. … Overall this book provides a refreshing treatment of this important subject and should prove a useful addition to the existing text books available to undergraduate and graduate students and researchers in the field of materials science. It would also prove useful in providing a science base for students studying materials engineering subjects.”­­­ (Michael Davies, Materials World, October, 2011)

“The present book is a treatise on the basics of materials science, but at the same time it is intended for the beginners as well. The book is undoubtedly is a reference book as well, and in no case be cast aside by the students after completion of their one or two semester course exposure. … The readers would love to keep this book in their nearest shelf. The important references given at the end of each chapter are classical ones and of enduring importance.” (G. S. Upadhyaya, Science of Sintering, Vol. 43, 2011)
