Materials Science and Engineering (MATSE)

MATSE 581 Computational Materials Science II: Continuum, Mesocale Simulations (3) This course will focus on computational techniques and fundamentals of phase transformation simulations on the continuum, mesocale level.

MATSE 581 Computational Materials Science II: Continuum, Mesocale Simulations (3)

This course will focus on computational techniques and fundamentals of phase transformation simulations on the continuum, mesocale level. The objective of the course is to introduce the evolution of simulation techniques and integrate fundamental principles in thermodynamics and kinetics with advanced computational approaches.

The teaching will be problem-oriented using literature publications. There will be many hands-on computer exercises to gain experience in presenting problems to computer and interpreting the computer results. This course is particularly useful for students who would like to explore the power of computational approaches and would like to understand the thermodynamic and kinetic principles behind computational phase transformations.
