This book is designed as a textbook for undergraduate students of Mechanical Engineering and related courses. The second edition maintains the student-centric presentation of the materials. The book is organized in a two-chapter format for the materials in Conduction, Convection, and Radiation with the first chapters containing the essential topics and the second chapters optional topics. A chapter on Mass Transfer has been added to this edition. There are sufficient materials for two 3-credit courses.
An Introduction to Material Characterization summarizes the various methods of characterization of materials commonly used in engineering (metals and alloys, ceramics and polymers). Most books on materials talk about the materials in engineering, their properties, production etc. The techniques of evaluation and characterization are simply mentioned or at the most described briefly. There are very few specialized books on material characterization. The book helps the reader to gain a proper understanding of the principles behind the methods and devices of characterization of materials. These principles are taken from various topics in the basic physical sciences. An engineer dealing with materials needs some help in understanding the background. This also applies to designers, technicians and the selector of materials, who will all benefit from understanding these basic principles. .
This book is an outcome of a research project carried out by the authors at the Homi - Bhabha Centre for Science Education. The project was aimed at developing innovative content and appropriate pedagogic strategies for the physics laboratory at higher secondary and undergraduate levels.
