MSE 624 - Kinetics of Solid-state Reactions


An introduction to basic kinetic processes in materials, develops basic mathematical skills necessary for materials research, and reinforces basic numerical and computer programming skills. Students learn to formulate the partial differential equations and boundary conditions used to describe basic materials phenomena in the solid state including mass and heat diffusion in single- and two-phase systems, the motion of planar phase boundaries, and interfacial reactions. Students develop analytical and numerical techniques for solving these equations and apply them to understanding microstructural evolution. (Y)
