MSE 501 / MAE 561 / CEE 561 Graded A-F, P/D/F, Audit
Introduction to Materials
Emphasizes the connection between microstructural features of materials and their properties, and how processing conditions control structure. Topics include atomic bonding, crystal structure, thermodynamics, phase diagrams, defects, microstructure, diffusion, phase transformations, nucleation, coarsening, glasses, elastic and plastic deformation, fracture, sol-gel processing, sintering, and composites.
