Mechanical Behavior of Materials: Deformation and Design is the first textbook to adopt a design-led approach to the teaching of mechanical behavior of materials in which the underlying fundamental science is presented in the context of design. This approach has been found to help motivate and engage students through real-life case studies and illustrative applications. In addition to the design-led approach, Mishra and Charit cover newer content not found in other textbooks, such as recent advances in microstructural characterization techniques and up-to-date presentation of fundamentals that link the microstructure of engineering materials with realistic mechanical response.

Key Features

  • Relates microstructural distribution in engineering materials to mechanical behavior and failure
  • Discusses the deviation of engineering microstructure from ideal microstructure
  • Contains examples of mechanical properties that are brought together under the basic microstructural framework
  • Provides aspects of design-led and systems approaches to materials that are integrated in one book
  • Includes an online solutions manual, image bank, and lecture slides for instructors
