Module content
Lectures:

The course will be focused on the fundamental mechanisms that operate at micro- and nano-meter level across a wide-range of engineering materials, in a way that is mathematically simple and requires no extensive knowledge of materials. This integrated approach provides a conceptual presentation that shows how the microstructure of a material controls its mechanical behavior. This course encompasses deformation-based microscopic mechanisms, including dislocation motion, diffusion, and viscoplasticity. Macroscopic mechanical response of engineering materials, first of all metals and alloys will be related to elasticity and plasticity concepts for single crystal and polycrystalline materials. Practical design considerations for deformation will be included as well as an introduction to fracture mechanisms. Also, the manufacturing component of the module introduces students to the general methodologies involved in carrying out a metal forming operation. The methodologies of how microstructure can be significantly improved via thermomechanical processing are investigated and aim to build insight into the operation and capabilities of metal forming techniques. Finally the methods of predicting life of components subjected to complex and extreme loading conditions, such as fatigue and dynamic or explosive loading are examined and explored. The modeling and simulation section then investigates advanced practical methods of describing performance.

Auditorium classes:

• Stress, strain, yield strength, fracture strength, Considere criterion.
• Yield criteria, flow rules, creep, fracture.
• Strengthening mechanisms in crystalline solids. Yield strength ranges for ductile metals.
• Deformation mechanisms, dislocation glide, cross-slip, dislocation climb.
• Nabarro-Herring creep, plane strain fracture.
• Computer modeling of microstructure evolution and mechanical properties.
• Deformation in the multi-phase conditions.
• Materials behavior under dynamic loading.
