3.21 Kinetic Processes in Materials
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.
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 Tuesdays and Thursdays in 4-237.
This class counts for a total of 15 credits.
3.22 Mechanical Behavior of Materials
Explores how the macroscale mechanical behavior of materials originates from fundamental, microscale mechanisms of elastic and inelastic deformation. Topics include: elasticity, viscoelasticity, plasticity, creep, fracture, and fatigue. Case studies and examples are drawn from a variety of material classes: metals, ceramics, polymers, thin films, composites, and cellular materials.
This class has 3.032 as a prerequisite.
3.22 will not be offered this semester. It will be available in the Spring semester, and will be instructed by C. Tasan.
Lecture occurs 9:30 AM to 11:00 AM on Mondays and Wednesdays in 4-237.
This class counts for a total of 12 credits.
