3.40[J] Modern Physical Metallurgy
Examines how the presence of 1-, 2- and 3-D defects and second phases control the mechanical, electromagnetic and chemical behavior of metals and alloys. Considers point, line and interfacial defects in the context of structural transformations including annealing, spinodal decomposition, nucleation, growth, and particle coarsening. Concentrates on structure-function relationships, and in particular how grain size, interstitial and substitutional solid solutions, and second-phase particles impact mechanical and other properties Industrially relevant case studies illustrate lecture concepts. Students taking the graduate version explore the subject in greater depth.
3.40[J] will not be offered this semester. It will be instructed by C. Tasan.
This class counts for a total of 12 credits. This is a graduate-level class.
