Properties and characterization of engineering materials. The behavior of engineering materials is studied experimentally to develop an understanding of properties important in materials selection and engineering design. Structure-property-processing relationships are discussed. Topics include stress, strain, strength, stiffness, thermal expansion, hardness, tensile and bending tests, strain gages, corrosion, microstructure of metals, polymers, ceramics and composites.
Pre-Req: CHEM 1210 Chemistry I; and Mechanical Engineering majors only.
