Material Science and Failure Analysis (MEE235)


Prerequisite Courses

Course Memo

This course deals with materials classification and their characteristic properties, atomic structure, the concept of the unit cell of a crystalline solid, and study of the phase diagram. Material characteristics related to mechanical properties are emphasized. Material failures and failure due to stress concentration, fatigue, and impact are discussed. Brief study of composite material and criteria for material selection based on maximization of strength with respect to both minimum mass and minimum cost will be studied. Prerequisites: MAT125, PHY125
