Description

Fundamental relationships between structure, processing, physical properties and performance for metallic, ceramic, polymeric, composite and electronic materials.

This introductory course is intended for engineering students of all disciplines. The fundamental relationships between structure, processing and physical properties will be examined for metallic, ceramic, polymeric, and composite materials. This course will lay the foundation for the second professional year course ENME307 (Performance of Engineering Materials).

Learning Outcomes

At the conclusion of the course, the successful student:

1) will be able to identify the major properties of the different classes of materials (metals, ceramics, glasses, polymers, and electronic materials);
2) will be able to recognize the interdependence of the structure, properties, processing, and performance of materials, and will be able to describe the important parameters that govern the relationships between these four categories;
3) will be able to integrate fundamental materials science with laboratory synthesis and processing, as well as analysis of experimental data.
4) will be able to communicate technical materials concepts with other engineers including through writing laboratory reports

The lectures topics include:

  • atomic, crystalline and microscopic structure of metallic, ceramic, polymeric and composite materials.
  • crystalline defects and diffusion
  • mechanical properties and strengthening mechanisms
  • metal forming
  • fracture mechanisms and failure analysis
  • phase diagrams and kinetics of phase transformations
  • solidification processing of metal and plastics
  • materials selection


    The laboratories supplement the lectures with practical experience in observing and measuring the properties and behaviour of engineering materials.

    Lab 1: Introduction to Atomic Arrangement and Crystal Structure. This laboratory introduces students to tensile testing and property determination, atomic structure, and indexing XRD spectra. A structured worksheet is required for this lab.
    Lab 2: Mechanical Properties of Structural Materials. Students perform tensile testing of various alloys and impact testing of an Al alloy and a steel. The relationships between alloy microstructure and properties are explored. A formal laboratory report is required for this lab.
    Lab 3: Alloying and Phase Equilibria. Students construct an Pb-Sn phase diagram using cooling curves for various alloy compositions and sketch the resultant solidified microstructures. A structured worksheet is required for this lab.
    Lab 4: Microstructure Property Relationships in Brass. Students perform grain size and hardness measurements on cold rolled brass samples subjected to annealing at a variety of times and temperatures. Grain growth kinetics and the Hall-Petch effect are studied. A formal laboratory report is required for this lab.
    • University Graduate Attributes
