Preface to Materials for Engineers and Technicians PDF
In revising this well-loved and established textual content for its fourth version it appeared most acceptable to make use of the phrases of the creator Raymond Higgins to point the background to his writing of the textual content and merely so as to add a footnote on the finish of this preface to point the adjustments I’ve made for this fourth version.
Syllabuses have modified because the earlier editions of this e book and have thus necessitated a change in emphasis in the direction of offering the readers with the required background data
And understanding of the properties and processing of supplies so that he/she will be able to make an clever choice of supplies for particular makes use of and realise why selections have been made to make use of supplies for explicit functions. Broadly talking,
Chapters 1 to 8 cowl the ‘Engineering Materials’ unit of Degree 3 unit of BTEC Nationals in Mechanical Engineering
And lead into the remaining chapters which as an entire cowl the ‘Materials Engineering’ unit of the BTEC Larger Nationals in Mechanical Engineering.
To satisfy the above adjustments and additionally, taking the chance introduced by a brand new version, the next adjustments have thus been made:
• The sequence of the chapters has been modified to allow the sooner components of the textual content to cowl the supplies unit of the BTEC Nationals in Mechanical Engineering and result in a protection of the supplies unit within the BTEC Larger Nationals in Mechanical Engineering.
• The looks and presentation of the textual content has been up to date in a bigger web page dimension to reinforce entry.
• Additional materials has been added to deal with the adjustments in supplies and their makes use of, e.g. extra on titanium and a dialogue of semiconductors and their manufacturing.
• A brand new chapter ‘Causes of failure’, drawing on a few of the materials from the earlier version and bringing collectively varied strands from completely different chapters within the e book, has been included.
• The e book title has been modified from ‘Materials for the Engineering Technician’ to mirror the rising use manufactured from the textual content in undergraduate programs in addition to the unique goal readership of technicians.
