Materials Science and Engineering

  • It all about the raw materials and how they are processed

  • That is why we call it materials ENGINEERING

  • Minor differencesin Raw materials or processing parameters can meanmajor changes in the performanceof the final material or product

Introduction to Materials Science for Engineers

 By James F. Shackelford

Seventh Edition, Pearson/Prentice Hall, 2009.

Doing materials l.jpg
Doing Materials!

  • Engineered Materials are a function of:

    • Raw Materials Elemental Control

    • Processing History

  • Our Role in Engineering Materials then is to understand the application and specify the appropriate material to do the job as a function of:

    • Strength: yield and ultimate

    • Ductility, flexibility

    • Weight/density

    • Working Environment

    • Cost: Lifecycle expenses, Environmental impact*

* Economic and Environmental Factors often are the most important when making the final decision!

Introduction l.jpg

  • List the Major Types of MATERIALS That You Know:

    • METALS

    • CERAMICS/Glasses



    • ADVANCED MATERIALS( Nano-materials, electronic materials)

Introduction cont l.jpg


Steel, Cast Iron, Aluminum, Copper, Titanium, many others


Glass, Concrete, Brick, Alumina, Zirconia, SiN, SiC


Plastics, Wood, Cotton (rayon, nylon), “glue”


Glass Fiber-reinforced polymers, Carbon Fiber-reinforced polymers, Metal Matrix Composites, etc.

Introduction, cont.

Slide20 l.jpg

Periodic table ceramic compounds are a combination of one or more metallic elements (in light color) with one or more nonmetallic elements (in dark color).

Glasses atomic scale structure of a a ceramic crystalline and b a glass noncrystalline l.jpg
Glasses: atomic-scale structure of (a) a ceramic (crystalline) and (b) a glass (noncrystalline)

Optical properties of ceramic are controlled by grain structure l.jpg
Optical Properties of Ceramic are controlled by “Grain Structure”

Grain Structure is a function of “Solidification” processing!

Slide23 l.jpg
Polymers are typically inexpensive and are characterized by ease of formation and adequate structural properties

Composite materials oh so many combinations l.jpg

Thoughts about these fundamental materials l.jpg
Thoughts about these polymers in color“fundamental” Materials

  • Metals:

    • Strong, ductile

    • high thermal & electrical conductivity

    • opaque, reflective.

  • Ceramics: ionic bonding (refractory) – compounds of metallic & non-metallic elements (oxides, carbides, nitrides, sulfides)

    • Brittle, glassy, elastic

    • non-conducting (insulators)

  • Polymers/plastics: Covalent bonding  sharing of e’s

    • Soft, ductile, low strength, low density

    • thermal & electrical insulators

    • Optically translucent or transparent.

The materials selection process l.jpg
The Materials Selection Process polymers in color


Pick Application

Determine required Properties

Properties: mechanical, electrical, thermal,

magnetic, optical, deteriorative.



Identify candidate Material(s)

Material: structure, composition.



Identify required Processing

Processing: changes structure and overall shape

ex: casting, sintering, vapor deposition, doping

forming, joining, annealing.

Slide28 l.jpg

Properties depend on Structure (strength or hardness) polymers in color
















Hardness (BHN)












Cooling Rate (ºC/s)


Processing can change structure! (see above structure vs Cooling Rate)

Another example rolling of steel l.jpg
Another Example: Rolling of Steel polymers in color

  • At h1, L1

    • low UTS

    • low YS

    • high ductility

    • round grains

  • At h2, L2

    • high UTS

    • high YS

    • low ductility

    • elongated grains

Structure determines Properties but Processing determines Structure!

Electrical Properties (of Copper):

  • Electrical Resistivity of Copper is affected by:

  • Contaminate level

  • Degree of deformation

  • Operating temperature

MAGNETIC Properties

• Magnetic Permeability

vs. Composition:

--Adding 3 atomic % Si makes Fe a better recording medium!

• Magnetic Storage:

--Recording medium

is magnetized by

recording head.

Course goal is to make you aware of the importance of material selection by l.jpg
Course Goal is to make you aware of the importance of Material Selection by:

• Using the right material for the job.

one that is most economical and “Greenest” when life cycle usage is considered

• Understanding the relation between properties, structure, and processing.

• Recognizing new design opportunities offered

by materials selection.
