By Henry Tindell

Engineering Materials have always lagged behing the fertile imagination of the inventor. Early steam engines designers had to ‘make do’ with wood, wrought and cast iron and Frank Whittle’s ‘jet’ almost failed due to a lack of suitable high temperature alloys. It is therefore essential that any model engineer has at the very least a sound understanding of the materials so vital to our hobby and this book goes along way in providing in-depth information on the properties, functions and limitaions of most engineering materials. One of the most informative aspects of the book is an analysis of accidents caused by a combination of poor design and material failure. This is a superb well illustrated reference book and should be on the shelf of any engineer, model or full size.
