Course Objectives

Explain the structure and thermodynamics of surfaces and interfaces like free surfaces, high and low angle grain boundaries, coherency and incoherency of interfaces and motion of boundaries, kinetics of reactions in the solid state and Arrhenius equation, nucleation phenomena in phase transformations, structure of cold worked alloys, mechanisms and kinetics of recovery and recrystallization processes, thermodynamics of solid solutions and ordered phases. Calculate equilibrium shapes of surfaces, kinetics of grain growth, recovery, recrystallization and other thermally activated reactions. Design simple heat treating processes to develop microstructure in single phase metals and material properties.
