Material Science Iii
This course builds on an earlier Materials Science course. It introduces the ways in which different engineering materials are formulated and manipulated to attain certain properties and how they behave in use.
To impart the knowledge about the behavior of materials and their applications
At the end of this course, the student should be able to:
- Explain the composition of the various engineering materials
- Explain the behavior of materials in use
- Describe the nature of the common engineering materials
- Explain the process of heat treatment of metals and their alloys
- Outline the processes and applications of non-metallic materials
A student on completing this course is expected to:
- Interpret the influence of the processing of a metallic alloy, ceramic and polymeric substance on its microstructure and properties.
- relate the structure of a composite material to improved strength and toughness.
- select appropriate materials and processing routes for the realization of an engineering design goal, based on properties and performance characteristics.
