Basics of Materials Engineering

Por: Swayam . en: ,


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.
