METE303 MECHANICAL BEHAVIOR OF MATERIALS

Course Code: 5700303
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. OSMAN ALPAY ANKARA
Offered Semester: Fall Semesters.
Prerequisite: Set 1: 5700202
The course set above should be completed before taking METE303 MECHANICAL BEHAVIOR OF MATERIALS.

Course Objective

1.Explain the behavior and response of crystalline solids to applied forces. 2.Use the basic theoretical background to continuum description of stress and strain through crystalline and defect mechanisms of flow and fracture. 3.Have the understanding of dislocation theory which will lead to a better understanding of plastic flow, strengthening mechanisms and fracture mechanics

Course Content

Micromechanics of deformation, slip, dislocations. Strengthening mechanisms: solid solution strengthening, particle strengthening, grain size strengthening, fiber strengthening. work hardening. Mechanical behavior at elevated temperatures. Micromechanics of fracture: brittle fracture, void initiation, growth and coalescence. Ductile-brittle transition temperature. Fatigue. Toughening mechanisms in materials. Mechanical behavior of composites.

Learning Outcomes

Students apply basic science and materials science knowledge to the mechanical aspects of materials.
