Course Objective

This course is designed to provide a conceptual framework for understanding the behaviour of engineering materials by emphasizing important relationships between internal structure and properties and to present a general picture of the nature of materials and the mechanisms that act upon, modify, and control their properties.

Course Content

Introduction to properties of materials. Mechanical behavior of solids: Elasticity , theoretical strength, plastic deformation, fracture, creep, fatique, viscosity, viscoelasticity. Thermal properties of materials: Thermal conductivity, thermal expansion, thermoelectricity. Electronic properties, optical properties, magnetic properties and chemical properties.

Learning Outcomes

After succesfully completing this course the student will be able to 1. Explain the basic fundamentals of materials science and engineering. 2. Describe the conceptual framework for the behavior of engineering materials. 3. Establish important relationships between internal structure, properties and performance of materials during processing and use.
