Mechanical Engineering

ME5122*Solid State Phenomena3 ch (3C)
Covers the fundamental aspects of crystallographic structure and their effects on the physical and mechanical properties of solids wiith emphasis on metallic materials with engineering applications. The importance of selecting alloying elements will be explored to optimize various properties such as but not limited to strength, ductility, fatigue, creep, corrosion, electrical, and magnetic. Construction and analysis of binary and ternary phase diagrams, which are critical in alloy design, complemented with computational thermodynamics will be covered. At the end of the course, the students are expected to understand the design and processing of commercial alloys.
