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. Topics include irreversible thermodynamics; rate and transition state theory, diffusion; nucleation and phase transitions; continuous phase transitions; grain growth and coarsening; capillarity driven morphological evolution; and interface stability during phase transitions.

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

3.21 will be offered this semester (Spring 2019). It is instructed by C. Thompson.

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

This class counts for a total of 15 credits.
