This question Good books to understand the basics of material science Was marked as duplicate and redirected to Best Materials Science Introduction Book? The thing is, the second question was particularly about Neutron scattering.But in the first question, I asked for an introductory undergrad text like the book by Van Vlack(Fortunately someone answered my question).Clearly, Neutron scattering seems to be advanced(at least for me).Does this mean, this site is only for researchers and scientists? While voting a question as duplicate, do people read the content of the question or just compare the titles?. I even flagged the question, explaining that it is not a duplicate.But, I got no response.(In particular, I think "Chair" was one of the persons who voted it duplicate.I am not accusing him.But would like an explanation from him.)
Apparently I'm one of the people who voted to close this, so I can easily give my opinion on this situation.
His question specifically was:
"What would you suggest as a good introduction to materials science?"
While yours stated:
"suggest me some good books(introductory level) to understand the basics of material science."
These two questions are identical besides formatting.
There is a note added which says:
"Prior usage and examples would be wonderful, my particular focus is neutron scattering"
but that doesn't really change the base of their question. The question is still about a good introductory book for material science. They didn't even really say the books had to discuss those topics at all. They were just showing what their interests/focuses were.
You can also see this good related answer on a very similar topic which gives a good rundown of some reasons why such questions would be closed as duplicates, even in less obvious situations.
