Description

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

This introductory course is designed for mechanical engineering students. The fundamental relationships between structure, processing and physical properties will be examined for metallic, ceramic, polymeric, and composite 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.

The lectures of this course aim to help students achieve understanding of:

  • 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
  • thermodynamics and kinetics of phase transformations
  • solidification processing of metal and plastics
  • welding
  • properties other than mechanical (e.g., optical, magnetic, thermal, electrical and electronic)
  • corrosion
  • materials selection

    The laboratories supplement the lectures with practical experience in observing and measuring the properties and behaviour of engineering materials
    • University Graduate Attributes

      This course will provide students with an opportunity to develop the Graduate Attributes specified below:

      Critically competent in a core academic discipline of their award

      Students know and can critically evaluate and, where applicable, apply this knowledge to topics/issues within their majoring subject.

Pre-requisites

Subject to the approval of the Dean of Engineering and Forestry
