An understanding of mechanisms for mechanical behavior is essential to applications of new materials and new designs using established materials. Focusing on the similarities and differences in mechanical response within and between the material classes, this book provides a balanced approach between practical engineering applications and the science behind mechanical behavior of materials. Covering the three main material classes: metals, ceramics and polymers, topics covered include stress, strain, tensors, elasticity, dislocations, strengthening mechanisms, high temperature deformation, fracture, fatigue, wear and deformation processing.
