Description The course objectives are to provide a broad based coverage of science and engineering of materials of construction particularly metallic materials. Fundamental concepts of Metal Physics are first discussed in depth for metals and common alloys. These are then extended to more complex alloy systems and other materials such as ceramics, polymer, etc.. Behaviour of materials during their processing and applications is examined in relation to microstructure, their composition, resistance to envirionments, etc. The topics covered include: Atomic and crystal structures, interatomic bonding, crystallography, environment Elements from the periodic table, which form part of the engineering materials, are identified. The basic parameters of the microstructure of the materials interatomic bonding, crystallography, allotropy, lattice defects and flaws in materials, grains and interfaces, imperfections, texture, microstructure, grains and grain surfaces, texture. Mechanical behaviour including stress strain relationship, plasticity, strength, toughness, formability, etc.. Measurements of strength, toughness, resistance to fracture and fatigue damage, creep, etc. Corrosion resistance and measures to control corrosion susceptibility of materials. Failures of materials in service, mechanisms and option of failure prevention. Major alloy systems, phase transformations, equilibrium diagrams and thermal/thermomechanical processing, strengthening mechanisms. Optimization of microstructures in relation to desired properties, Design and processing of alloys,. Selection of industrial alloys for applications. Material specifications and test standards. Application of databases and and property charts for materials selection. Case studies in materials design, selection and applications.
