Most general 'engineering materials' books cover relevant topics. For example, try:
- Newey C and Weaver G, Materials: Principles and Practice, Open University and Butterworths, 1990.
- Weidmann G, Lewis P and Reid N, Structural Materials, Open University and Butterworths, 1990.
Also consider looking at: Kelly A Groves G W and Kidd P, Crystallography and Crystal Defects (revised edition), John Wiley, 2001 --a comprehensive (and mathematically detailed) exploration of the relationship between the crystal structure and properties of solids.
CD-ROM and websites
