Outline and Purpose of the Course In this course, we discuss properties that are important in selecting and using materials, as well as the basic concepts necessary for understanding these properties, focusing on metal.
Course Goals Course objective: By the end of the course, students will have the basic knowledge they need to pursue further studies in materials science and they will be able to investigate appropriate materials in experimentation and design.
Schedule and Contents (1) Structure of matter, 4 classes: Explain the size of the atoms, which are the basis of matter, and their electron configuration, types of bonds between atoms, the positions of electrons in solid matter, density and thermal expansion, and so on.
(2) Production of materials, 3 classes: Explain redox and the coagulation of melts, phase equilibrium of materials comprised of two or more chemical elements, and other information concerning the composition of materials.
(3) Mechanical properties, 2 classes: Explain properties related to the structural materials used to support loads such as elastic deformation and plastic deformation, yield strength, creep, and so on.
(4) Change in properties, 2 classes: Explain factors behind the change in the mechanical properties of materials such as addition of chemical elements, annealing, normalizing, quenching, and so on, as well as the reasons for these factors.
(5) Functions of materials, 2 classes: Explain the main functional properties of materials such as conduction of heat and electricity, specific heat, penetration of light, magnetism, and so on.
(6) Resources and recycling, 1 class: Discuss information concerning sustainable development such as abundance and reserves of chemical elements, recycling of materials, and so on.
(7) Confirmation of learning attainment, 1 class: Post explanation discussion and review of examination questions on KULASIS.
