Metallurgy and Materials Science - MET 116
Introduction to Physical Metallurgy
3 Credit Hours3 Lecture Hours
This course introduces the physical metallurgy of ferrous and non-ferrous metals, the history and production of alloys and fabricated metal products, material selection and failure analysis. It provides the foundation for the subsequent laboratory-based courses.
(A requirement that must be completed before taking this course.)
Upon successful completion of the course, the student should be able to:
- Investigate the historical background of the metallurgical profession.
- Examine common crystal structures of industrial materials.
- Calculate atomic packing factors for simple cubic, body centered cubic and face-centered cubic structures.
- Examine solid solutions and the theory of alloying.
- Calculate the proportions of phases present in a two-component alloy using the lever rule.
- Explore the various production methods for modern metal alloys.
- Explore various methods of fabricating and finishing metal products.
- Classify plain carbon and alloy steels by industrially important methods.
- Classify cast irons by industrially important methods.
- Classify specialty metals by industrially important methods.
- Classify non-ferrous metals by industrially important methods.
- Examine the roles of availability, economics, properties and business issues in the material selection process.
- Summarize the basic steps of performing a failure analysis.
- Write clear thesis and topic sentences that are well supported by details, examples, reasons, facts, data and correct citations.
