EMA 4324 LECTURE SECTION 3009 STABILITY OF MATERIALS FALL SEMESTER 2004 Course Information and Syllabus Course Objectives 1. to develop an understanding of what drives the deterioration of engineering materials - the origins of instability - and what is necessary for its prevention or control; 2. to identify the contributing factors which control the rate with which materials degrade and deteriorate, how degradation rates are measured and how these measurements are analyzed and interpreted. 3. to acquire an instinct for associating the physical appearance of deteriorated materials with the origins of the deterioration - a “diagnosis”, hopefully with a “cure” being the result; 4. To become familiar with the terminology, conventions and sources for information regarding stability of materials. 5. To demonstrate the ability to analyze a material degradation failure and to select methods for short term [”quick fix”] and long term remediation of the problem. The remediation will require integration of scientific, engineering and economic analyses as they apply. Course Information
