The SI version of Askeland's "The Science and Engineering of Materials" emphasizes current materials testing, materials testing procedures and selection, and makes extensive use of class-tested examples and practice problems. Procedural lists used to analyze and solve materials, and emphasis on informed decision-making methodology are also included. This fully revised text has eliminated all mention of units other than SI, with the exception of certain units which have been left in metric form deliberately because of the frequency of their use. The diagrams are relabelled, the exercises altered and graphs and tables originating from US installations have been replaced by those from the UK and Europe. Additional new topics include the Arrhenius relationship, the unary phase diagram and dual phase steels. Answers to selected end-of-chapter problems are also provided. P. Webster was responsible for the conversion of units from American standard measurement.

Donald R. Askeland joined the University of Missouri-Rolla in 1970 after obtaining his doctorate in Metallurgical Engineering from the University of Michigan. His primary interest has been in teaching, resulting in a variety of campus, university, and industry awards and the preparation of a materials engineering textbook. Dr. Askeland has also been active in research involving metals casting and metals joining, particularly in the production, treatment, and joining of cast irons, gating and fluidity of aluminum alloys, and optimization of casting processes. Additional work has concentrated on lost foam casting, permanent mold casting, and investment casting; much of this work has been interdisciplinary, providing data for creating computer models and validation of such models.
