Here is the listing of Best reference books on Concepts in Materials Science.
|1. “Principles of Electronic Ceramics” by L.L. Hench and J.K. West
Book Review: This book provides a very good introduction to the physical principles of electronic ceramic materials. The book also describes theoretical concepts via structures, quantum mechanics and statistical mechanics. The book also fills the gap that exists between solid state text theory and applied materials texts. The book also provides many equations which are derived from first principles. The book presents theoretical applications, material properties, graded set problems and many more.
|2. “Solid State Chemistry and its Applications” by A.R. West
Book Review: This book covers all the advancements in the field of materials science and updates the content of the popular book which is named basic solid state chemistry. This is a very good textbook of solid state chemistry at the undergraduate level. The book contains chapters on high temperature superconductors, carbon forms, inorganic material application which is very important for the functional material development in the fields of energy, catalysis and electronic materials. Each section in the book starts with introduction covers basic concepts as well as advanced ones. The book is very useful for undergraduates and researchers dealing with solid state chemistry.
|3. “The Nature and Properties of Engineering Materials” by Z.D. Jastrzelaski
Book Review: This book provides comprehension and integration of the basic properties related to various engineering materials like metals, ceramics, polymers as well as their application in the design of engineering. The book also explains point defects, grain boundaries, superconductivity, optic fibers, wood, glass fiber plastics and many more. The book also demonstrates the basic principles underlying manufacturing processes, engineering applications as well as failures of different materials.
