ME 250 - Principles of Engineering Materials


Introduction to atomic bonding and crystallography. The fundamental types of engineering materials including metals and alloys, ceramics, polymers and composites. Physical, chemical and mechanical properties of materials and their role in the selection of materials for design. X-ray diffraction, diffusion and dislocation in crystals. Phase diagrams and their significance. Corrosion and failure of materials and methods for prevention. Laboratories involving materials such as metals and alloys, ceramics, plastics and composites. Tests of both destructive (tensile, impact, creep and cold work) and nondestructive (hardness, X-ray diffraction, and microscopic tests) nature are conducted. Annealing, precipitation hardening and heat treatment processes are included. (3-3)

Requisites: CHEM 111, MATH 161. (Required, Previous).
