About book:

Building on the success of previous edition, this book continues to provide engineers with a strong understanding of the three primary types of materials and composites, as well as the relationships that exist between the structural elements of materials and their properties. With improved and more interactive learning modules, this textbook provides a better visualization of the concepts. Apart from serving as a text book for the basic course in materials science and engineering in engineering colleges, the book covers topics that can be used to advantage even in specialized courses pertaining to engineering materials. The book can be consulted as a good reference source for important properties of a wide variety of engineering materials, which benefits a wide spectrum of future engineers and scientists.

 About author:

 (Late) Professor Balasubramaniam obtained his Bachelor of Technology degree from the Department of Materials and Metallurgical Engineering, Institute of Technology, Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi, in 1984, securing the University Gold Medal. He went on to complete his PhD from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Troy, NY, USA, in 1990. He served as an Adjunct Faculty at RPI, during which time he taught the materials science and engineering course in 1989-1990. Since 1990 he has been teaching, on his return to India, in the Department of Materials and Metallurgical Engineering at the Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur. He is the recipient of the Director’s Citation for Best Teacher, several times at IIT Kanpur.

Professor Balasubramaniam has been active in government-sponsored and industrial-sponsored research activities related to corrosion, materials-hydrogen interactions and structure-property co-relations in advanced materials.Recently Prof Balasubramaniam was bestowed by an award titled DISTINGUISHED EDUCATOR OF THE YEAR by Indian Institute of Metals.
