Student Learning Outcomes

Course Name: Properties of Materials
Course Number: ENGR 8
  • Describe and explain how the macroscopic properties of different glasses (ceramics), polymers, composites, soft/hard magnetic materials and superconductors relate to their submicroscopic/atomic structure.
  • Draw, label and explain different phase diagrams.
  • Explain the mechanism of crack propagation for ductile and brittle modes of fracture.
  • Describe dislocation and strengthening mechanisms.
  • Interpret and draw stress-strain diagrams.
  • Describe the mechanism of diffusion and calculate diffusion coefficients for some given materials at specified conditions.
  • Describe both vacancies and interstitial crystalline defects.
  • Compute the densities for metals having face-centered cubic and body-centered cubic crystal structures given their unit cell dimensions.
  • Compare and contrast the atomic and molecular structure in crystalline and noncrystalline materials.
  • Students will be able to identify regions and lines on a Eutectic Phase Diagram.
  • Students will be able to use of various formulas for computing the solidification time of a simple casting.
