Theories of Structure of Materials
This course teaches the crystal structure and crystallography and is divided into three sections. The first section is on the crystal structure and describes how the simple metallic and complicate structures like ionic and covalent bonded structures are formed. The details of atomic structure of defects such as dislocations, twins, grain boundaries, and surface will be examined. The second section is the crystallography. After the introduction of symmetry, the seven crystal systems, 14 Bravais lattice, and
Kinetic Process in Materials
This course is to provide beginning graduate students with the basic, quantitative ideas on kinetic processes in materials in general. The overall reaction taking place in materials is usually a consecutive process of surface or interface reaction and diffusion in the bulk. Mathematics of diffusion in continuum is first dealt with in some depth, followed by the atomic theory of diffusion, chemical reaction kinetics and linear irreversible thermodynamics. This course will explore diffusion in concentration g
Statistical Mechanics
As the processing technology of materials become smaller and smaller, rightfully with the emergence of nanotechnolo- gy, the results of the processing should be understood with the statistical distribution of behaving atoms and molecules. Since most of these processing results are based on kinetics, rather than thermodynamics, the subject of “Statistical Mech- anics” should be taught in the graduate class of “Materials Science and Engineering” in conjunction with “Statistical Thermodynamics”. “Statistical M
