General objectives
Materials 1 gives a first insight in material science applied to engineering problems. The aim is to analyse the macroscopic behaviour of the material in relation with their microstructure and atomic structure. Further on, the studied properties are used to establish different criteria for material selection in different applications.
Content
Classes of materials, elastic properties of isotropic materials, real crystals and crystalline defects, plasticity in crystalline solids, relationship between mechanical properties and microstucture. Physical, chemical and thermal properties of materials. Materials selection for mechanical design and other applications.
Pre-requisites
Chemistry I, Thermodynamics, Solid and Structures I
