Steven R. Schmid's Manufacturing Processes for Engineering Materials, SI Edition
Manufacturing Processes for Engineering
Materials, 6e (SI Units) addresses advances in all aspects of manufacturing, clearly presenting comprehensive, up-to-date and balanced coverage of the fundamentals of Materials and processes. With the Sixth Edition, students will learn to properly assess the capabilities, limitations and potential of manufacturing processes and their competitive aspects. The numerous examples and case studies throughout the book help to develop a perspective on the real-world applications of the topics described in the book. As in previous editions, this text maintains the same number of chapters while continuing to emphasize the interdisciplinary nature of all manufacturing activities, including the complex interactions among materials, Design and manufacturing processes.Features Chapter and Content Updates include: Economic multiplier; Technology readiness level; case study on three-dimensional Printing
