Chapter 3 - 1 ISSUES TO ADDRESS. .. How do atoms assemble into solid structures? How does the density of a material depend on its structure? When do material properties vary with the sample (i.e., part) orientation? Chapter 3: Structures of Metals & Ceramics How do the crystal structures of ceramic materials differ from those for metals?

Chapter 3 - 4 Metallic Crystal Structures How can we stack metal atoms to minimize empty space? 2-dimensions vs. Now stack these 2-D layers to make 3-D structures

Chapter 3 - 5 Tend to be densely packed. Reasons for dense packing: - Typically, only one element is present, so all atomic radii are the same. - Metallic bonding is not directional. - Nearest neighbor distances tend to be small in order to lower bond energy. - Electron cloud shields cores from each other Have the simplest crystal structures. We will examine three such structures. .. Metallic Crystal Structures

Chapter 3 - 8 Coordination # = 8 Adapted from Fig. 3.2, Callister & Rethwisch 3e. (Courtesy P.M. Anderson) Atoms touch each other along cube diagonals. --Note: All atoms are identical; the center atom is shaded differently only for ease of viewing. Body Centered Cubic Structure (BCC) ex: Cr, W, Fe ( α ), Tantalum, Molybdenum QuickTime and a Cinepak decompressor are needed to see this picture. 2 atoms/unit cell: 1 center + 8 corners x 1/8
