MSE 532 - Deformation and Fracture Mechanics of Structural Materials

Considers deformation and fracture through integration of materials science microstructure and solid mechanics principles, emphasizing the mechanical behavior of metallic alloys and engineering polymers. Metal deformation is understood based on elasticity theory and dislocation concepts. Fracture is understood based on continuum fracture mechanics and microstructural damage mechanisms. Additional topics include fatigue loading, elevated temperature behavior, material embrittlement, time-dependency, experimental design, and life prediction. (Y)
