Introduction to experimental techniques to characterize the properties of materials. Design parameters. Prerequisite: ENGR 54. Same as MAE156. (Design units: 2) Meyers and Chawla. Mechanical Behavior of Materials, Prentice Hall Beer and Johnston. Mechanicals of Materials, 2nd Edition, McGraw—Hill. Dieter, Mechanical Metallurgy, 2lld Edition, McGraw-Hill. Farghalli A. Mohamed Relationship to Program Outcomes: This course relates to Program Outcomes MSE: a, c, e, f, i, j, and k as stated at: http://undergraduateeng.uci.edu/degreeprograms/materials/mission Performance Criteria/Course Outcomes: Students will: Prerequisites by Topic: Apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering to concepts and analyses dealing with elasticity, plasticity, failure and the role of the microstructure in influencing the mechanical behavior. (MSE a) Select a material to meet desired needs in terms of strength, weight, and cost. (MSE c) Identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems related to mechanical behavior and to failure by yielding (MSE e) Understand the professional and ethical responsibility related to the selection of a material whose mechanical properties would meet certain design requirements. (MSE f) Understand that materials are continually evolving requiring continuing education to learn about advances in mechanical behavior. (MSE i) Understand contemporary issues related to mechanical behavior of materials. (MSE j) An ability to apply and integrate knowledge from each of the four primary elements of Materials Science and Engineering (structure, properties, processing and performance) to solve problems related to materials selection and design. (MSE k) Structure of materials Lecture Topics: Class Schedule: Computer Usage: Laboratory Projects: rofessional Component: Design Content Description: Approach: Lectures: Laboratory Portion: Grading: Types of materials (review) Elasticity Plasticity Tension, compression, and hardness tests Imperfection point, line, and surface Strengthening processes Creep and superplasticity Composites and nano-materials Meets for 3 hours of lecture each week and assigned 3 hours laboratory session each week for 10 weeks. Students are encouraged to practice problems which are given in the text and which require the use of computer basic skills. Tensile test (1 Lab period) Grain size effect (1 lab period) Strain rate effect (2 lab period) Impact test (1 lab period) Hardness test (1 lab period) Superplasticity (1 lab period) Creep of materials (1 lab period) Contributes toward the Materials Science and Engineering Major design experience. The design activities involve short problems that are given to the students in addition to the homework assignments. These problems address: (a) factor of safety and allowable stress, (b) selection of appropriate materials to meet certain criteria, (c) the role of mechanical properties such as ductility, compatibility, stiffiiess, and toughness, in designs. 70% 3 0% Laboratory: 15% Projects 10% Midterm 20% Homework 15% Quizzes 10% Final 30% 1 00% Estimated ABET Category Content: Mathematics and Basic Science: 0 credit units or % Engineering Science: 2 credit units or 50% Engineering Design: 2 credit units or 50% Updated by: Farghalli A.
