Error Analysis, Optimization, and Statistical Experimental Design in Materials Research- (EMA 3800 ) Spring 2012 Description: Statistical approach for materials research, basic and relevant statistical concepts, error analyses, factorial matrices, reducing the variance, nested designs and sampling plans, mixture designs, optimization technology, response surface method. Credits: 3 ; Coreq: EMA 3010. Schedule: MWF, 5 th period Location: CSE E118 Course Objectives: The course objective is to learn how to plan, design and conduct experiments efficiently and effectively, and analyze the resulting data to obtain objective conclusions. Both design and statistical analysis issues are discussed. Opportunities to use the principles taught in the course arise in all phases of engineering work, including new product design and development, process development, and manufacturing process improvement. Applications from various fields of engineering (including chemical, mechanical, electrical, materials science, industrial, etc.) will be illustrated throughout the course. Computer software packages (Design-Expert, Minitab) to implement the methods presented will be illustrated extensively, and you will have opportunities to use it for homework assignments and the term project. The course will involve Error Analysis, Statistical Design of Experiments, Comparing Two or More Treatments, The Balanced Block Design, Factorial Designs, Lab & Industrial Applications, Fractional Factorials, Screening Techniques, Least Square Theory, Regression Analysis, Optimization Techniques and Surface Responses. The course schedule and outline contains assigned reading topics from the textbook and suggested homework problems . The Design-Expert computer software package can be used to solve many of the problems in the textbook. Other reading references are listed below. To give credit to these sources, some examples are formulated out of the reading resources listed below especially from Hunter’s modules Contribution of course to meeting the professional component
