Course Description:

Prerequisites: MSE 227 and MSE 227L

The main techniques used in this course, center around the application of scientific principles to real-life situations. Library research is necessary to develop most of the topic discussions. The course covers dislocation theory and plastic deformation in order to explain strengthening mechanisms in different materials. Materials applications in elevated temperature are studied to understand the design criteria for these applications.

Fundamentals of fracture mechanics, microstructure aspects of fracture toughness, transition temperature, environment-assisted cracking, and fatigue crack propagation is discussed to be able to design based on the damage tolerant concept, and failure analysis using scanning electron microscopy.

This course requires extensive design problem solving, technical presentation, and a term paper on a current topic in materials application or design.

Course Method and Expectations:

The main techniques to be used in this course, center on the application of scientific principles to real-life situations. Library research is necessary to develop most of the topic discussions.

Mechanical Testing and Properties

Tensile Test & the properties obtained from the Tensile Test

  • Note: in Metals, Yield stress is usually the stress required for dislocations to slip.

Tensile Test & the properties obtained from the Tensile Test

Note: Young’s modulus is a measure of the stiffness of the material.


Tensile Test & the properties obtained from the Tensile Test

Er=1/2(yield strength)(strain at yielding)

The Bend Test for Brittle Material

  • Due to the presence of flaw at the surface,
  • in many brittle materials, the normal tensile
  • test cannot easily be performed.

6.7 The Impact Test  impact strength

To evaluate the brittleness of a material subjected to a sudden blow.

Impact strength vs. Temperature

Note: BCC metals have transition temperature, but most FCC metals do not.


6.7 The Impact Test  impact strength

Yield Strength: A > B
