Fundamental relationships between structure, processing, physical properties and performance for metallic, ceramic, polymeric, composite and electronic materials.
The fundamental relations between structure, processing, properties and performance are introduced for all classes of engineering materials. This course will lay the foundation for the proposed second professional year course ENME307 (Mechanical Behaviour of Materials).
Students will understand:
atomic, crystalline and microscopic structure of metallic, ceramic, polymeric and composite materials.
crystalline defects and diffusion
mechanical properties and strengthening mechanisms
thermodynamics and kinetics of phase transformations
solidification processing of metal and plastics
fracture mechanisms and failure analysis
properties other than mechanical (e.g., optical, magnetic, thermal but mainly electrical and electronic)
Weeks 1-2 lecturer will be Professor Kral
Weeks 3-12 lecturer will be Dr Bishop
