MAT_SCI 435: High Temperature Materials

Quarter Offered

Winter : TTh 9:30 ; Dunand

Description

This course covers the mechanics and microstructure of structural materials for high-temperature applications. The mechanisms of time-dependent deformation and failure at high homologous temperature are treated in a quantitative manner.  Materials used at high temperature (metals, ceramics and their composites) are reviewed, with emphasis on the relationship between microstructure and high-temperature mechanical properties.
