MSE 731 - Mechanical Behavior of Materials

Studies the deformation of solids under stress; emphasizing the role of imperfections, state of stress, temperature and strain rate. Description of stress, strain, strain rate and elastic properties of materials comprise the opening topic. Then considers fundamental aspects of crystal plasticity, along with the methods for strengthening crystals at low temperatures. Covers deformation at elevated temperatures and deformation maps. Emphasizes the relationships between microscopic mechanisms and macroscopic behavior of materials. (Y)
