3.14 Physical Metallurgy


Class Info

Focuses on the links between the processing, structure, and properties of metals and alloys. First, the physical bases for strength, stiffness, and ductility are discussed with reference to crystallography, defects, and microstructure. Second, phase transformations and microstructural evolution are studied in the context of alloy thermodynamics and kinetics. Together, these components comprise the modern paradigm for designing metallic microstructures for optimized properties. Concludes with a focus on processing/microstructure/property relationships in structural engineering alloys, particularly steels and aluminum alloys. Students taking the graduate version explore the subject in greater depth.

This class has 3.022, and 3.032 as prerequisites.

3.14 will be offered this semester (Fall 2017). It is instructed by C. Tasan.

Lecture occurs 9:30 AM to 11:00 AM on Mondays and Wednesdays in 4-261.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits.
