1 Physical Metallurgy SYLLABUS 14 – 635 : 362 Spring 2010 Ver. 4.2 Instructor: Victor A Greenhut ± greenhut@alumina.rutgers.edu McLaren CCR 102 COURSE OBJECTIVES <Student Competencies> : Understand relationship of: Processing, Structure, Properties & Performance { SP 3 } a. Practical understanding of key principles of Physical Metallurgy b. Know commercially important metals and alloys - with practical engineering constraints. c. Ability to select a metal system and/or an alloy* d. Ability to select casting and/or mechanical forming methods* * based upon advantages/disadvantages of different technologies including: COURSE FORMAT: The course is provided in PowerPoint format as lively, highly interactive lecture/recitations. Physical Metallurgy stresses practical, common engineering via lectures, readings and exercises concentrating on technology backed by science. Course material is derived from Metallurgy for Non-Metallurgists * a weeklong intensive course initiated, directed and taught by the instructor. This popular short course has been taught internationally, publicly and in-plant to many thousands of professional engineers and scientists for >30 years. It is imitated by several professional materials societies. Students are provided, free of charge, expanded and updated Metallurgy for Non-Metallurgists - in PowerPoint presentation visuals (metallograph, schematic, graph, table. ..) plus new outlines, notes and supplemental reference information. The PowerPoint™ visuals are used for all presentations. A full online version allows students to take personal notes directly on the lecture material. Each subject has an extended written “outline” of major concepts for learning reinforcement. A brief review of relevant material of prior MSE courses is included. The gratis lecture notes constitute the official course text. The Metals Handbook: Desk Edition , 2 nd Ed .** and full 21 volume Metals Handbook 9 th Ed.** are available as “online” resources in the MSE Undergraduate Computer Room (CCR 213). These texts are practical metals engineering references used in course exercises. Students are encouraged to purchase, as a course and life-long learning/reference aid, personal copies of the Metals Handbook: Desk Edition , 2 nd Ed . at below ½ price - a special instructor-organized arrangement with ASM International. Samples, examples of actual engineering problems, open-ended problem solving and application choices are incorporated both to extend knowledge of practical application and to provide engineering “experience”. Students will complete these exercises as part of “independent” study both individually and in small groups. These realistic problems in materials selection and processing will be based chiefly on use of the complete Metals Handbook ™ as a resource. Voluntary extra workshops, review sessions and seminars will be provided in topic areas related to
