Chapter 1 Introduction
Applications of fluid mechanics
Some characteristics of fluids
Dimensions and units
Some fluid properties
Stress versus Strain
Perhaps the simplest questions
that a design engineer can ask
about a structural material are:
1) How strong is it?
2) How much deformation must I
expect given a certain load?
This basic description of th

A single-phase microstructure
can be polycrystalline.

associated microstructures) should be stable
and unchanging with time.

Heat Capacity, C: A fundamental material property defined as
the amount of heat required to raise material temperature by
1K (= 1 C).
DIRECTIONS AND PLANES
There are a few basic rules for describing
geometry in and around a unit cell.
Lattice positions: distances expressed as
fractions or multiples of unit-cell dimensions.
For example, the body-c
