BEST 221: Mechanical Behavior of Materials


Units: 4

Matrix, tensor, and representation surface descriptions of stress, strain, and material properties (elastic, plastic, photoelastic and piezoelectric). Isotropic and anisotropic properties. Microscopic and macroscopic response of materials to stress, including plasticity due to dislocation motion, twinning and martensitic transformations. Kinetics of plastic deformation. Applications to materials processing, strengthening, and failure. Knowledge in an introductory materials course such as ENGR 045 is strongly suggested.
