Metallurgy and Materials Science - MET 216
3 Credit Hours2 Lecture Hours2 Laboratory Hours
This course applies theories of elasticity and plasticity as well as mechanisms of strengthening and fracture to the mechanical testing of materials by various loading and measurement techniques. In addition, common forming methods are discussed.
(A requirement that must be completed before taking this course.)
Upon successful completion of the course, the student should be able to:
- Demonstrate practical mechanical testing laboratory skills based on standard industry practices.
- Demonstrate mechanical testing laboratory citizenship skills (safety consciousness, quality focus, teamwork, ethical behavior).
- Demonstrate laboratory notebook and report writing skills.
- Examine elasticity theory.
- Examine plasticity theory.
- Examine dislocation theory.
- Examine plastic deformation.
- Examine strengthening mechanisms in crystalline solids.
- Examine recovery, recrystallization and grain growth.
- Explain the relationship between dislocation movement and strengthening mechanisms in crystalline solids.
- Demonstrate mechanical property tests based on standard industry practices.
- Explain the different modes of loading for common mechanical property tests.
- Explore the various parts of the curve that results from a quasi-static, uniaxial tensile test.
- Explain the differences between engineering stress-strain curves and true stress-strain curves.
- Demonstrate the Charpy impact test.
- Examine fracture behavior for ductile and brittle materials.
- Examine mechanical behavior in conventional metal forming processes.
