ENGRD 2610 - Mechanical Properties of Materials: From Nanodevices to Superstructures

(also MSE 2610 )
Fall. 3 credits.

Prerequisite: MATH 1910 . Corequisite: PHYS 1112  or permission of instructor.

S. Baker.

Examines the mechanical properties of materials (e.g., strength, stiffness, toughness, ductility) and their physical origins. Topics include the relationship of elastic, plastic, and fracture behavior to microscopic structure in metals, ceramics, polymers, and composite materials. Effects of time and temperature on materials properties, and considerations for design and optimal performance of materials in engineered objects and biological tissues.
