This free downloadable pdf book "Electronic basis of the strength of materials" teaches you material formation, material strength from the atoms and molecules boding point of view. The download link is below. Reader interested in using atomic-scale simulations and high-end characterization techniques to determine the electronic structure of materials, and understanding reactions at surfaces and between molecules will find this book useful. The book begins with introductions to quantum mechanics and deformation mechanics that undergraduates in science or engineering can understand. From there, the book shows how the electronic configuration of different atoms can be used to deduce the type of solids they will form, and their mechanical properties such as bulk and shear modulus. The different types of intermolecular and intramolecular bonding are also discussed, and how each is attributable to different electron configurations.
