Affiliation

Name: A. Saatchi
SCID: College of Engineering
Department: Materials Science and Engineering Department
Course Name: MS&E 350: Introduction to Materials EngineeringCourse Objectives:Develop an understanding of the following:

  1. The relationships between material structures and engineering properties.
  2. How structures are manipulated in common industrial processes to optimize properties.
  3. How material selection is an integral part of engineering design.

Course Units:

Develop understanding of fundamentals and application of materials. This will be discussed in 3 Units:

 

Unit Objective #1, Structure and Properties

  1. General characteristics of major material groups.  
  2. Atomic structure, bonding and structure of materials.  
  3. Defects in various materials.
  4. Correlation of the above to the mechanical, chemical, electrical and thermal properties of materials.  

 

Unit Objective #2, Processing and Properties

  1. Thermodynamics and stability of phases.
  2. Equilibrium phase diagrams and microstructure development.
  3. Kinetics and microstructure transformations.
  4. Correlation of the above to mechanical, chemical, and electrical properties.

 

Unit Objective #3, Properties and Performance

  1. Mechanical Properties and Testing of materials.
  2. Mechanisms of strengthening techniques.  
  3. Mechanical failure, Degradation, Corrosion and Oxidation of Materials.  
  4. Integration of information to develop material selection.  
  5. Communications skills: written and visual/oral.
