MTLE 4910 - Design in Materials Engineering

Basic design concepts and the underlying structureproperty-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. Generic design against yielding, fracture, flexure, buckling, fatigue, creep, corrosion, and wear are addressed, as opposed to design of specific products or in specific areas. A semester-long team design project is a principal focus. Team-building and leadership skills are developed. Non-technical issues of environmental impact, cultural and societal impact, safety and health, ethics, and cost are discussed. Writing assignments and oral reports develop communication skills. Enrollment for MS&E majors is restricted to seniors or graduates.

Prerequisites/Corequisites: Prerequisites: CHEM 1100 and ENGR 1600 or ENGR 2010.

When Offered: Fall term annually.

Credit Hours: 3
