P. et al. McGraw Hill, 1999 ISBN: 0-256-24766-8 Course Description Introduction to the structure and properties of solid materials, emphasizing the rela- tionships between the structure of a solid and its properties. Atomic and molecular origins of electrical, mechanical, and chemical behavior are treated in some detail for metals, alloys, polymers, ceramics, glasses, and composite materials. Lectures are accompanied by laboratory work. Prerequisites: Chemistry 11L and Mathematics 31 or 33. Learning Objectives Students successfully completing ME 83L will be able to: (1) describe and discuss material properties and behavior in scientific and quanti- tative terms 1 (2) understand and describe the intimate link between material structure, prop- erties and processing (3) apply the fundamentals of chemical thermodynamics and heat and mass transfer to predict material properties quantitatively (4) integrate objectives (1)-(3) to select an appropriate material for a given engineer- ing application and to solve simple material design problems quantitatively....
