WE3104 Engineering Materials II
This is a continuation of Engineering Materials I. This course studies a vast complement of common industrial materials, describing their respective micro-structures and properties based on fundamentals of atomic bonding, phase transformation and strengthening mechanisms. Processes such as heat treatment and mechanical working are dealt with from the theoretical as well as the practical aspect. Course topics include: Fe-Fe3C phase diagram, IT and CT diagrams, phase transformations, micro-structural and property changes of Fe-C alloys, Heat Treating, precipitation hardening, micro-structural and mechanical properties of ferrous and nonferrous metals, ceramics, polymers, composites, and corrosion.
