Langue: Anglais

Remark: Pas donné en 2020-21. Some of this course will be given via video conference and will be simultaneously taught with an MIT subject.


Summary

Covers development and design of models for materials processes and structure-property relations. Emphasizes techniques for solving equations from models or simulating and visualizing behavior. Topics include symmetry, structure, thermodynamics, solid state physics, mechanics, and data analysis.

Content

Keywords

Materials science, modeling, visualization, simulations

Learning Prerequisites

Required courses

MSE 443(a)

Important concepts to start the course

At least intermediate level programming with Mathematica. At least intermediate level knowledge of core materials science topics, calculus, linear algebra.

Learning Outcomes

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

  • Analyze models of materials science phenomena
  • Visualize results of solutions and simulations
  • Model materials science phenomena

Transversal skills

  • Assess one's own level of skill acquisition, and plan their on-going learning goals.
  • Demonstrate a capacity for creativity.
  • Demonstrate the capacity for critical thinking

Teaching methods

Flipped classroom with programming exercises, extemporaneous lectures.

Expected student activities

Students will complete exercises and asked to demonstrate their work to the rest of the class.

Students will need to work on exercises outside of class and present their work to the rest of the class.

Students will develop three projects with formal demonstrations to the class and instructors.

Assessment methods

Grades will be given on project demonstrations and examples of programming in class.

Supervision

Office hours Yes
