3.35 Fracture and Fatigue


Class Info

Advanced study of material failure in response to mechanical stresses. Damage mechanisms include microstructural changes, crack initiation, and crack propagation under monotonic and cyclic loads. Covers a wide range of materials: metals, ceramics, polymers, thin films, biological materials, composites. Describes toughening mechanisms and the effect of material microstructures. Includes stress-life, strain-life, and damage-tolerant approaches. Emphasizes fracture mechanics concepts and latest applications for structural materials, biomaterials, microelectronic components as well as nanostructured materials. Limited to 10.

This class has 3.22 as a prerequisite.

3.35 will be offered this semester (Spring 2018). It is instructed by M. Dao.

Lecture occurs 3:00 PM to 4:30 PM on Tuesdays and Thursdays in 4-145.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits.
