Elementary Materials Science (ASM International, 2013) provides an introduction to the topic designed as a tool for for non-technical professionals needing explanations of materials as well for as students with limited backgrounds in sciences. Starting with chemistry basics, chapters cover nonferrous materials, iron and steel, ceramics, polymers, composites, and wood as well as the mechanical, electrical, and magnetic behaviors of different materials.
Elementary Materials Science is available through our Knovel subscriptions. Knovel makes hundreds of sci/tech reference works available online. Students, faculty, and staff at CBU have access from on- and off-campus.
