Western University Department of Mechanical & Materials Engineering ES 1021A - “Properties of Materials” COURSE OUTLINE – 2013-2014 This is the first course in the field of structure-property relationships for engineers. However, for some engineering disciplines at Western, this is the only course on material properties. Therefore, the course material includes a combination of fundamental concepts in materials science and specific examples to illustrate the impact of material choice on component performance. CALENDAR DESCRIPTION: An Introduction to the relationship between the microstructure and the engineering properties of metals, ceramics, polymers, semi-conductors and composites. This relationship will be applied to demonstrate effective methods used to select materials for the design of engineering components. COURSE INFORMATION: Instructor: Dr. Jeff Wood Room SEB 3061 Email: [email protected] Lectures: M, W, F 8:30-9:30 (SEB 1059) Tutorials: Tu 8:30 – 10:30 Office Hours: Tu 2:30 – 4:30 ACCREDITATION UNITS: Science = 50%, Engineering Science = 50% TOPICS: 1. Classification of Materials 2. Materials and Design 3. Elastic Response of Materials 4. Plastic Response of Materials 5. Fracture Toughness and Fatigue 6. Materials at Elevated Temperature 7. Electrical, Magnetic and Optical Properties SPECIFIC LEARNING OBJECTIVES: On the successful completion of this course, the student will be able to: 1. a) Classify materials as a metal, ceramic, polymer or composite based on a knowledge of the atomic bonding and structure.
