MECH BEHAVIOR OF MATERIALS
Prerequisites: MSE E3153, E4153; Recommended preparation: a course in mechanics of materials. Review of states of stress and strain and their relations in elastic, plastic, and, viscous materials. Dislocation and elastic-plastic concepts introduced to explain work hardening, various materials strengthening mechanisms, ductility and toughness. Macroscopic and micro-structural aspects of brittle and ductile fracture mechanics, creep and fatigue phenomena. Case studies used throughout, including flow and fracture of structural alloys, polymers, hybrid materials, composite materials, ceramics, and electronic materials devices. Materials reliability and fracture prevention emphasized.
