Why isn't wood weaker that it is? Why isn't steel stronger? Why does glass sometimes shatter and sometimes bend like spring? Why do ships break in half? What is a liquid and is treacle one? All these are questions about the nature of materials. All of them are vital to engineers but also fascinating as scientific problems. During the 250 years up to the 1920s and 1930s they had been answered largely by seeing how materials behaved in practice. But materials continued to do things that they 'ought' not to have done. Only in the last 40 years have these questions begun to be answered by a new approach. Material scientists have started to look more deeply into the make-up of materials. They have found many surprises; above all, perhaps, that how a material behaves depends on how perfectly - or imperfectly - its atoms are arranged. Using both SI and imperial units, Professor Gordon's account of material science is a demonstration of the sometimes curious and entertaining ways in which scientists isolate and solve problems.… (mer)

Glimrende bog om materialefysik. Lim er fx utrolig interessant i Gordons fremstilling. ( )

wonderful book! I've been excited about glues ever since I first read it; AND I do my own personal little experiments whenever I see a new one. ( )

Unexpectedly fun to read. The author has a conversational style that is unlike most other science and engineering books. The book was originally written in the 1960's and is a bit dated, despite being updated for the second edition in 1976. The information about material strength is still good, and the discussions about early aircraft, ship, and locomotive design are the best parts. ( )

This book is a model for how to write a hugely entertaining and interesting book on a seemingly mundane topic: Why don't we fall through the floor? This is how science should work: Ask questions about things we take for granted and see if we really know the answer. A must read for anybody interested in engineering and architecture, but also a must read for any aspiring science writer. These days a lot of publishers think science writing has to be about something obviously spectacular (black holes, strings...) to be exciting. Gordon shows that good writing can make any topic hugely interesting - even more so as this is actually relevant to our daily lives. ( )
