MECH 5609 [0.5 credit] (MCG 5123) Microstructure and Properties of Materials
Essential microstructural features of metals and alloys: crystal structure, dislocations, grain boundaries. The importance of these features in controlling mechanical properties is emphasized. Analytical techniques observing microstructure in metals and other materials: TEM, SEM, electron diffraction, spectrometry.
Precludes additional credit for MECH 5804 (if taken 2002-2003, 2003-2004).
