Mechanical Testing of Engineering Materials
The book features engaging, instructive experiments on topics such as the modification of material microstructure through heat treatment, hardness measurement and the interpretation of hardness data, and the extraction of elastic and plastic material properties of different materials from uniaxial monotonic and cyclic loading experiments. Students also learn about the mechanical behavior of viscoelastic materials, wear testing, and how to correlate measured fatigue properties to microstructure characteristics.
This latest edition of Mechanical Testing of Engineering Materials includes illustrative examples, important formulae, practice problems and their solutions, and updated experiments with representative results. In addition, each chapter features a question set which can be used for laboratory assignments. Based on the requirements for undergraduate courses in the discipline, the book is ideal for classes on the mechanical behavior of materials.
