MENG 000/3217 - Mechanical and Structural Behavior of Engineering Materials Lab (1 cr.)

ENGR 2102 , ENGR 2104 , and MENG 2112  

MENG 327/3207Description
Through a series of experiments carried out by the students, the behavior of the different classes of engineering materials including metals, polymers, ceramics, and composites are demonstrated. Relationship of bonding type, crystalline/amorphous structures to properties of metallic/polymeric/ceramic materials and their applications. Materials’ mechanical performance under the various loading modes. Difference between meso and microstructure, single and multiphase solids, etc. Experiments that demonstrate the influence of cooling rate, strain hardening and heat treatment on the mechanical behavior of materials. Identify causes of failure resulting from chemical attack (corrosion), mechanical wear (erosion) or due to structural changes associated with high temperature (creep), etc.

When Offered
Offered in fall and spring.
