CRC Practical Handbooks are a series of single-volume bench manuals that feature a synthesis of frequently used, basic reference information. These highly abridged versions of existing CRC multi-volume Handbooks contain largely tabular and graphic data. They provide extensive coverage in a scientific discipline and enable quick, convenient access to the most practical reference information...on the spot! Leading professionals in their respective fields collaborated to provide individuals and institutions with an economical and easy-to-use source of classic reference information. Practical Handbook of Materials Science is a concise reference for the physical properties of solid state and structural materials. This work is interdisciplinary in approach and content, and it covers a variety of types of materials, including materials of present commercial importance, plus new biomedical, composite, and nuclear materials.

Research scientists and practicing engineers in the fields of materials science and engineering, civil engineering, chemistry, physics, and nuclear chemists and engineers will benefit from this economical desktop reference. It also has a large interdisciplinary market for students at the advanced undergraduate and graduate levels in science and engineering.
