3.022 Microstructural Evolution in Materials


Class Info

Covers microstructures, defects, and structural evolution in all classes of materials. Topics include solution kinetics, interface stability, dislocations and point defects, diffusion, surface energetics, grains and grain boundaries, grain growth, nucleation and precipitation, and electrochemical reactions. Lectures illustrate a range of examples and applications based on metals, ceramics, electronic materials, polymers, and biomedical materials. Explores the evolution of microstructure through experiments involving optical and electron microscopy, calorimetry, electrochemical characterization, surface roughness measurements, and other characterization methods. Investigates structural transitions and structure-property relationships through practical materials examples.

This class has 3.012 as a prerequisite.

3.022 will be offered this semester (Spring 2018). It is instructed by Y. Chiang, G. Beach and J. Hu.

Lecture occurs 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays in 4-231.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits.
