Books for Basic Materisls Eng. Course

Any recommendations on the books for basic materials engineeirng course? I would like to consider DVD/Video to supplement the book/s. The audience will be manufacturing staff in a medium size, metal-based industry dealing with steels and other materials.  Thanks.

RE: Books for Basic Materisls Eng. Course

Thanks UncleSyd and TVP for your help. ASM was the first place I looked. I was mostly expecting info on other sources, if any.

RE: Books for Basic Materisls Eng. Course

Possibly "Introduction to Physical Metallurgy" by S.H. Avner.

*Assuming it's still in print.

Possibly "Introduction to Physical Metallurgy" by S.H. Avner.

The book is out of print.

RE: Books for Basic Materisls Eng. Course

Try "The Science and Engineering of Materials" by Donald Askeland and Pradeep Phule.

RE: Books for Basic Materisls Eng. Course

ASM had some close out books
I bought a copy of

Materials Science & Engineering
Giles F. Carter and Donald E. Paul

If they still have it, it might be an inexpensive place to start.
