Course Description:
Prerequisites: MSE 227 and MSE 227L
The main techniques used in this course, center around the application of scientific principles to real-life
situations. Library research is necessary to develop most of the topic discussions. The course covers
dislocation theory and plastic deformation in order to explain strengthening mechanisms in different materials.
Materials applications in elevated temperature are studied to understand the design criteria for these
Fundamentals of fracture mechanics, microstructure aspects of fracture toughness, transition temperature,
environment-assisted cracking, and fatigue crack propagation is discussed to be able to design based on the
damage tolerant concept, and failure analysis using scanning electron microscopy.

This course requires extensive design problem solving, technical presentation, and a term paper on a current
topic in materials application or design.

materials, utensils etc.

Example:- Porcelain, Glass, Silicon nitride.

Types of Materials
Composite Materials
Mixture of two or more materials.
Consists of a filler material and a binding material.
Materials only bond, will not dissolve in each other.
Mainly two types :-
o Fibrous: Fibers in a matrix
o Particulate: Particles in a matrix
o Matrix can be metals, ceramic or polymer
Examples :-
Fiber Glass ( Reinforcing material in a polyester
or epoxy matrix)
Concrete ( Gravels or steel rods reinforced in
cement and sand)
