Course Objectives This course provides a conceptual framework for understanding the behavior of engineering materials by emphasizing important relationships between processing, internal structure and properties.
Course Learning Outcomes The students who succeeded in this course;
  • To understand the properties and characteristics of materials figure prominently in almost every modern engineering design.
  • To understand the relationship between processing, structure and physical properties.
  • To have a broad vision about the nature of materials and the mechanisms that act upon, modify, and control their properties.
Course Content Historical perspective and classification of materials; atomic structure and theory; bonding in solids; the structure of crystalline solids; fundamental mechanical properties of materials; phase diagrams; thermal processing of metal alloys; properties and use of ceramics, glasses and composites; material selection; design and economical considerati
