Micro- and Macromechanical Properties of Materials Press Reviews
This book offers the most comprehensive and complete overview of mechanical properties and fracture mechanics in the field of materials science. Besides, it provides a complete and rigorous overview in the research areas of mechanics and materials sciences from the viewpoint of length scales. ... Moreover, this book focuses on connections between scientific theories, experiment methods and engineering applications so as to serve as a good manual for engineers and technicians on mechanics of materials. --Daining Fang, LTCS, College of Engineering, Peking University, Beijing, China This book covers a wide range of topics from the fundamental aspects of mechanics to the mechanical properties of various materials including functional bulk materials and coating materials as well as thin films. I believe such a comprehensive book will be most helpful for the graduate students particularly in the mechanical engineering and materials science and engineering departments. --Jing-Feng Li, Tsinghua University, Beijing, China This is a textbook uniquely designed to interest students and researchers alike with an integrated method in dealing with material mechanical properties: macroscopic failure is explained with microscopic reasons. This is an interesting and surely good new perspective in understanding materials properties, functions and failure. Senior undergraduate students, research students and seasoned researchers in materials science and engineering would find it very useful. -Sam Zhang, Nanyang Technological University
