ME 430 - Failure of Engrg Materials (Same as TAM 424)
Last offered Fall 2021
This course studies the anisotropy of material and elastoplastic properties at crystal level, microstructural basis for fatigue, fracture, and creep in metals, polymers, and ceramics. Failure mechanisms and toughening in composites, structure and behavior of metal matrix composites, and ceramic matrix and polymer composites are also covered. (Students cannot receive credit for both ME 430 and TAM 424)
3 or 4 hours
Basic course in engineering materials.
