  1. Materials Science in Civil Engineering CE 336 Introduction to Construction Materials

  2. Role of Material Science in CE • Combining several sciences • Chemistry • Physics • Mechanics • Behavioral understanding of materials is based on knowledge of these sciences. CE 336

  3. Predicting Behavior • Civil Engineers design complex systems using relationships between • Stress vs. Strength • Strain vs. Deflection • Exposure vs. Durability • Risk vs. Consequence • Cost vs. Aesthetics & Life Cycle • Others CE 336

  4. Course Topics • Engineering Properties of Materials • Basic Material Science • Production of Construction Materials • Behavior of Engineering Materials • Measurement of Properties CE 336

  5. Forces Stresses Deformations Strains Stiffness Ductility Fracture Physical Properties Chemical Properties Thermal Properties Electromagnetic Acoustic Biological Engineering Properties CE 336

  6. Materials Science • Atomic nature of materials • Microstructure • Relationship between material structure and engineering properties • Altered structures to customize properties CE 336

  7. Measurement of Properties and Testing Standards • Consensus Standards • Government Standards • Industry Standards • Research Standards CE 336

  8. Accuracy and Reliability of Engineering Materials • Design Safety • Performance • Durability • Liability CE 336
