MAE 20, Elements of Materials Science (Summer 2010) Mid-term Exam Study Guide 1. Differences between covalent, ionic, and metallic bonding, examples of materials. 2. Miller indices for directions and planes in a cubic system 3. The concept and calculation of the atomic packing fraction (APF) in bcc and fcc unit cells. 4. Defects in crystals: vacancies and dislocations (edge vs. screw), how does their concentration vary with temperature 5. Fick’s laws of diffusion (see example problems in the textbook) 6. Features of the Engineering Stress-Engineering strain curves. Why is a True Stress- True strain curve more reliable? Relationship between these two types of representations.
