M E 365 Materials Testing Laboratory (1)
This laboratory course provides an integrated approach to materials science and engineering. The laboratory examines the important relationships between processing, microstructure, and the properties of materials. The course provides an introduction to basic characterization techniques for materials, such as microscopy, hardness testing, fracture testing and analysis, fatigue testing, and impact testing. In addition, material selection and heat treatment topics are covered. The course requires hands-on involvement by the students in the planning of experiments as well as data manipulation and analysis of results. The laboratory exercises are intended to provide students with a broad appreciation of the breadth of material science and engineering and the principles behind material characterization and property modification. Students work in groups, and written reports are the primary basis for grading.
