Manufacturing Processes for Engineering Materials
Serope Kalpakjian and Steven R. Schmid
This new edition of Manufacturing Processes for Engineering Materials continues its tradition of balanced and comprehensive coverage of relevant engineering fundamentals, mathematical analysis, and traditional as well as advanced applications of manufacturing processes and operations. Updated and thoroughly edited for improved readability and clarity, this book is written mainly for students in mechanical, industrial, and metallurgical and materials engineering programs. The text continually emphasizes the important interactions among a wide variety of technical disciplines and the economics of manufacturing operations in an increasingly competitive global marketplace.
New and expanded topics in this edition include:
§ Communications networks
§ Design considerations in manufacturing
§ Fabrication of micromechanical and microelectromechanical devices
§ Holonic manufacturing systems
§ Incremental forming
§ Life-cycle engineering and sustainable manufacturing
§ Mechanics of polymer processing
§ Nanomanufacturing and nanomaterials
§ Rapid prototyping and rapid tooling
§ Taguchi methods
§ Web sites for information relevant to manufacturing
Numerous figures have been added or improved for enhanced graphic impact, the number of questions and problems has been increased by about twenty percent and answers to selected problems are provided, and the Bibliography at the end of each chapter has been thoroughly updated. The text now has a larger number of cross-references throughout to give students a perspective of the often complex interrelationships among materials, product design, and manufacturing processes and operations, and the numerous technical and economic factors involved in their selection.

However, its impossible to fault a textbook for being dry, and that's the only reason the single star was docked. The descriptions of the manufacturing processes and their applications, on the other hand, were detailed and helpful, and the book is recommended in that regard.
Every week a quiz was given and studying for an hour with the book an notes helped me ace it every time.
**This semester I had expected that manufacturing would be the driest class; in fact this is one of the classes that I most enjoyed. I'm sure it was partly due because of my professor but this book certainly didn't hurt.
