Carbon Materials and Manufacturing
This course is focused on the preparation and structure-property relationship of various carbon materials for the purpose of device manufacturing. The contents are designed in a such a way that each type of carbon is taught in a “material-manufacturing pair”. Topics pertaining to the properties of various carbon allotropes, crystallinity and hybridization, raw materials, carbon fibers and composites, carbon nanomaterials and bulk industrial carbons will be covered.
INTENDED AUDIENCE :Advanced B.Tech./ M.Tech. M.E./ Ph.D. from materials/ manufacturing/ energy sciencesPREREQUISITES : Material Science for Engineers -OR- Structure of Materials (any basic material science course with description of crystal systems taught at UG level)INDUSTRIES SUPPORT :This course is of high industrial relevance. All companies manufacturing carbon-fiber composites, as well as other carbon materials will benefit.
