3.21 Kinetic Processes in Materials

Class Info

Unified treatment of phenomenological and atomistic kinetic processes in materials. Provides the foundation for the advanced understanding of processing, microstructural evolution, and behavior for a broad spectrum of materials. Emphasis on analysis and development of rigorous comprehension of fundamentals. Topics include: irreversible thermodynamics; diffusion; nucleation; capillarity; grain growth; phase transformations; and morphological instabilities; gas-solid, liquid-solid, and solid-solid reactions.

This class has 3.012, 3.022, and 3.044 as prerequisites.

3.21 will not be offered this semester. It will be available in the Spring semester, and will be instructed by C. Thompson.

Lecture occurs 9:30 AM to 11:00 AM on Mondays and Wednesdays in 4-237.

This class counts for a total of 15 credits.
