PHYS-307 / 4 credits

Teacher: La Grange Thomas

Language: English


Summary

This course illustrates some selected chapters of materials physics needed to understand the mechanical and structural properties of solids. This course deals primarily with the physics of dislocation. The course also links diffusion kinetics to the fundamental physics of phase transformations.

Content

Keywords

dislocations, deformation, diffusion, elasticity, phase transformations, melting, precipitation crystallography

Learning Prerequisites

Recommended courses

linear algebra I,II

analysis III, IV

physics I,II

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course, the student must be able to:

  • Develop the formalism of dislocation theory
  • Model the plastic deformation of materials
  • Sketch a phase diagram and its thermodynamic basis

Transversal skills

  • Use a work methodology appropriate to the task.
  • Assess one's own level of skill acquisition, and plan their on-going learning goals.

Teaching methods

Oral Lectures and exercises in the classroom. Lecture, exercise and reference materials will be made available on a Moodle. A questions and answer forum is also available on the moodle. Additionally, zoom meeting or in-classroom session will be arranged for exam preperation

Assessment methods

Oral exam in English
