MSE 5861 - Mechanical Properties of Materials: From Nanodevices to Superstructures

Fall. 3 credits. Letter grades only.

Prerequisite: PHYS 1112 . Enrollment limited to: graduate students. Co-meets with ENGRD 2610 /MSE 2610 .

A. Singer.

This course examines the mechanical properties of materials (e.g., strength, stiffness, toughness, ductility) and their physical origins. Explores the relationship of the elastic, plastic, and fracture behavior to microscopic structure in metals, ceramics, polymers, and composite materials. Discusses effects of time and temperature on materials properties. Emphasizes considerations for design and optimal performance of materials and engineered objects.
