The course consists a comprehensive yet concise approach towards Material science/Engineering materials. Spanning around 40+ lectures yet completing in just around 3 Hours !!. Perfect for engineering students having one of their subject (out of the dozens others) as material science or engineering materials. Covered topics are listed below.
Atomic & crystal structures - Crystal systems, Bravais lattices, Miller indices, cell characteristics, BCC (Body centered cubic), FCC (Face centered cubic) and HCP (Hexagonal close packing) structures.
Crystal Imperfections - Point (both elemental and compound crystal's), Linear, Planar, and bulk defects
The grain theory - Grain formation, measurement of grain size, grain structure, deformation types and mechanism
Multiphase structure - Solid solution, phase diagram (Unary and Binary), eutectic microstructure, types of invariant reactions, Fe-C phase, TTT diagram
Heat treatment of steel (HTS) - Hardening, tempering, austempering, martempering, annealing, stress relieving, spheroidizing, normalizing, case hardening
Mechanical properties of material - Tensile strength, Impact strength, Fatigue strength, Creep and hardness testing (Brinell, Vicker's and Rockwell)
Engineering metals- Plain carbon steel, alloy steel, cast iron, non-ferrous materials
Elementary knowledge of strength of material
Must know concepts like solute, solvent, oxidation, reduction etc
Patience and enthuse to learn
