Basics of Materials Engineering
The objective of this course is to introduce the basic concepts of materials science and failure theories for design to undergraduate mechanical engineering students. The course is a first level course and hence various concepts such as structure of crystalline materials, defects and their implications to mechanical behavior, the processing of materials through phase diagrams, a detailed discussion on iron-iron carbide equilibrium diagram and heat treatment of steels will be introduced at the introductory level.
