Front Cover: The objectthat appears on the front cover depicts a monomer unit for polycarbonate (or PC, the plastic that is used in many eyeglass lenses and safety helmets). Red, blue, and yellow spheres represent carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen atoms, respectively. Back Cover: Depiction of a monomer unit for polyethylene terephthalate (or PET, the plastic used for beverage containers). Red, blue, and yellow spheresrepresent carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen atoms, respectively. Editor Wayne Anderson Marketing Manager Katherine Hepburn Associate Production Director Lucille Buonocore Senior Production Editor Monique Calello Cover and Text Designer Karin Gerdes Kincheloe Cover Illustration Roy Wiemann Illustration Studio Wellington Studio This book was set in 10/12 Times Roman by Bi-Comp, Inc., and printed and bound byVon Hoffmann Press. The cover was printed by Phoenix Color Corporation. This book is printed on acid-free paper. The paper in this book was manufactured by a mill whose forest management programs include sustained yield harvesting of its timberlands. Sustained yield harvesting principles ensure that the number of trees cut each year does not exceed the amount of new growth.

undamentals of Materials Science and Engineering is an alternate version of my text, Materials Science and Engineering: An Introduction,Fifth Edition. The contents of both are the same, but the order of presentation differs and Fundamentals utilizes newer technologies to enhance teaching and learning. With regard to the order of presentation, there are two common approaches to teaching materials science and engineering—one that I call the ‘‘traditional’’ approach, the other which most refer to as the ‘‘integrated’’ approach. Withthe traditional approach, structures/characteristics/properties of metals are presented ﬁrst, followed by an analogous discussion of ceramic materials and polymers. Introduction, Fifth Edition is organized in this manner, which is preferred by many materials science and engineering instructors. With the integrated approach, one particular structure, characteristic, or property for all threematerial types is presented before moving on to the discussion of another structure/characteristic/property. This is the order of presentation in Fundamentals. Probably the most common criticism of college textbooks is that they are too long. With most popular texts, the number of pages often increases with each new edition. This leads instructors and students to complain that it is impossible to cover...
