MTLE 4910 - Materials Selection

This class covers basic materials selection concepts and the underlying structure-property-process-performance interaction. Engineering materials, structures and properties, principles and process of materials selection, generation of materials performances indices, assessment and optimization of performance, processing routes and manufacturing issues, role of reverse engineering and failure analysis in design are covered. Materials selection against yielding, fracture, flexure, buckling, fatigue, creep, corrosion, and wear are addressed. Decomposition of engineering problems into functional, geometric, and materials constraints are emphasized. Materials selection based on simple and complex or conflicting constraints will be developed. Students will perform written assignments and oral presentations to develop communication skills. Enrollment for Materials Science and Engineering majors is restricted to juniors, seniors, or graduates.

Prerequisites/Corequisites: Prerequisites: CHEM 1100 and ENGR 1600.

When Offered: Spring term annually.

Credit Hours: 3
