The leading source for learning materials science and engineering
Bill Callister’s text is the number one choice for learning materials science and engineering. Why? Because it delivers lucid explanations, thorough and up-to-date coverage, and outstanding art and learning resources. Now revised, this 7th Edition continues to promote student understanding of the three primary types of materials (metals, ceramics, and polymers) and composites, as well as the relationships between the structural elements of materials and their properties.

Online Animations and Learning Modules
The book companion site (www.wiley.com/college/callister) features learning modules with animations and 3-D projections that help students visualize challenging concepts and processes. The website also includes an interactive database of materials properties and costs.
A revised and updated (2nd ed., 1991) introductory textbook presenting the basic fundamentals of materials science and engineering at a level appropriate for college/university students who have completed their freshman calculus, chemistry, and physics courses. The most significant change in the present edition is the addition of a new chapter, Case Studies in Materials Selection, which includes five different case studies (a cantilever beam, an automobile valve spring, the artificial hip, the thermal protection system for the Space Shuttle, and packaging for integrated circuits) relative to the materials employed and the rationale behind their use.
