This first integrated approach to the thermomechanics of materials deals equally with the atomic scale, the mesoscale of microstructures and morphology, as well as the macroscopic level of actual components and workpieces for applications. With some 85 examples and 150 problems, it covers the three important material classes of ceramics, polymers, and metals in a didactic manner. The author surveys mechanical material behavior at both the introductory and advanced level, providing reading incentive to both students as well as specialists in such disciplines as materials science, chemistry, physics, and mechanical engineering. About 40 short biographies of important relevant historical persons constitute a special feature of this book. Backed by five appendices on symbols, units and abbreviations, data on material properties, properties of plane areas, statistics, and a summary of contact mechanics.

About the author (2006)

Gijsbertus de With is full professor in materials science. He graduated from Utrecht State University and received his Ph.D in 1977 from the University of Twente on the 'Structure and charge distribution of molecular crystals'. In the same year he joined Philips Research Laboratories, Eindhoven. In 1985 he was appointed part-time professor and in 1996 he became full professor at the Eindhoven University of Technology. His research interests include the chemical and mechanical processing as well as the chemo-mechanical behaviour of multi-phase materials and he holds about 10 patents.
