Course Code: 5700228
METU Credit (Theoretical-Laboratory hours/week): 3(3-0)
ECTS Credit: 5.0
Language of Instruction: English
Level of Study: Undergraduate
Course Coordinator: Prof.Dr. CEMİL HAKAN GÜR
Offered Semester: Fall Semesters.
Prerequisite: Set 1: 5700227
The course set above should be completed before taking METE228 ENGINEERING MATERIALS .

Course Objective

1.Realize the importance and significance of the knowledge of materials for mechanical engineers. Understand and explain phase diagrams and microstructures. Phase transformations, thermal processing of materials and its relation to microstructure and mechanical properties achieve certain level of information related to properties and processing of metallic, ceramic, polymeric and composite materials. 2.Understand and interpret the most common microstructures and relate them to their castings, deformation and/or thermal processing. 3.Simply select and evaluate appropriate materials for various mechanical engineering applications.

Course Content

Designation of materials; phase and phase diagrams; iron-carbon system; phase transformations; thermal processing of metallic materials; metal alloys; structure and properties of ceramic, polymeric and composite materials; material selection.

Learning Outcomes

Students apply materials science principles to understand a general picture of the nature of materials and the mechanisms that act upon, modify, and control their properties.
