  • 1. Introductry Lecture on Material Science
  • 2. Historical Perspective
    Stone/wood -> Bronze -> Iron -> Advanced materials (ceramic, semiconductors, polymers, composites…).
  • 3.
  • 4.
  • 5. Six Major Classes of Materials
    • Some of these have descriptive subclasses.
    • 6. Classes have overlap, so some materials fit into more than one class.
    • 7. Metals
    • 8. Iron and Steel
    • 9. Alloys and Superalloys (e.g. aerospace applications)
    • 10.  Intermetallic Compounds (high-T structural materials)
    • 11. Ceramics
    • 12. Structural Ceramics (high-temperature load bearing)
    • 13. Refractories (corrosion-resistant, insulating)
    • 14. Whitewares (e.g. porcelains)
    • 15. Glass

    • 26. Composites
    • 27. Particulate composites (small particles embedded in a different material)
    • 28. Laminate composites (golf club shafts, tennis rackets, Damaskus swords)
    • 29. Fiber reinforced composites (e.g. fiberglass)
    • 30. Biomaterials (really using previous 5, but bio-mimetic)
    • 31. Man-made proteins (cytoskeletal protein rods or “artificial bacterium”)
    • 32. Biosensors (Au-nanoparticles stabilized by encoded DNA for anthrax detection)
    • 33. Drug-delivery colloids (polymer based)
  • 34. Periodic Table of Elements
  • 35. Classes and Properties: Metals
    Distinguishing features
    • Atoms arranged in a regular repeating structure (crystalline - Chpt. 3)
    • 36. Relatively good strength(defined later)
    • 37. Dense
    • 38. Malleable or ductile: high plasticity (defined later)
    • 39. Resistant to fracture: tough
    • 40. Excellent conductors of electricity and heat
    • 41. Opaque to visible light
    • 42. Shiny appearance
    • 43. Thus, metals can be formed and machined easily, and are usually long-lasting materials.
    • 44. They do not react easily with other elements, however, metals such as Fe and Al do form compounds readily (such as ores) so they must be processed to extract base metals.
    • 45. One of the main drawbacks is that metals do react with chemicals in the environment, such as iron-oxide (rust).
    • 46. Many metals do not have high melting points, making them useless for many applications.
  • 47. Classes and Properties: Metals
    Elemental metals are in yellow
    • we need to recall and use knowledge from the periodic table
  • 48. Classes and Properties: Metals
    • Electrical wiring
    • 49. Structures: buildings, bridges, etc.
    • 50. Automobiles: body, chassis, springs, engine block, etc.

    What’s the largest use of shape-memory nitinol?
  • 59. Classes and Properties: Ceramics
    Distinguishing features
    • Except for glasses, atoms are regularly arranged
    • 60. Composed of a mixture of metal and nonmetal atoms
    • 61. Lower density than most metals
    • 62. Stronger than metals
    • 63. Low resistance to fracture: low toughness or brittle
    • 64. Low ductility or malleability: low plasticity
    • 65. High melting point
    • 66. Poor conductors of electricity and heat
    • 67. Single crystals are transparent
    • 68. Where metals react readily with chemicals in the environment and have low application temperatures in many cases, ceramics do not suffer from these drawbacks.
    • 69. Ceramics have high-resistance to environment as they are essentially metals that have already reacted with the environment, e.g. Alumina (Al2O3) and Silica (SiO2, Quartz).
    • 70. Ceramics are heat resistant. Ceramics form both in crystalline and non-crystalline phases because they can be cooled rapildy from the molten state to form glassy materials.

    • 85. Nitrides (Si3N4, AlN, GaN, BN, and TiN, which are used for hard coatings.)

    • 92. Some are transparent, some are opaque
    • 93. Polymers are attractive because they are usually lightweight and inexpensive to make, and usually very easy to process, either in molds, as sheets, or as coatings.
    • 94. Most are very resistant to the environment.
    • 95. They are poor conductors of heat and electricity, and tend to be easy to bend, which makes them very useful as insulation for electrical wires. They are also
  • 96. Classes and Properties: Polymers
    Two main types of polymers are thermosets and thermoplastics.
    • Thermosets are cross-linked polymers that form 3-D networks, hence are strong and rigid.
    • 97. Thermoplastics are long-chain polymers that slide easily past one another when heated, hence, they tend to be easy to form, bend, and break.

  • 193. Questions ??
  • 194. The COMET: first jet passenger plane - 1954
    In 1949, the COMET aircraft was a newly designed, modern jet aircraft for passenger travel. It had bright cabins due to large, square windows at most seats. It was composed of light-weight aluminum.
    In early 1950's, the planes began falling out of the sky.
    These tragedies changed the way aircraft were designed and the materials that were used.
    The square windows were a "stress concentrator" and the aluminum alloys used were not "strong"enough to withstand the stresses.
    Until then, material selection for mechanical design was not really considered in designs.
  • 195. Concorde Jetliner - August, 2000
    A Concorde aircraft, one of the most reliable aircraft of our time, was taking off from Paris Airport when it burst into flames and crashed killing all on board.
    Amazingly, the pilot knowingly steered the plane toward a less populated point to avoid increased loss of life. Only three people on the ground were killed.
    Investigations determined that a jet that took-off ahead of Concorde had a fatigue-induced loss of a metallic component of the aircraft, which was left on runway. During take-off, the Concorde struck the component and catapulted it into the wing containing filled fuel tanks. From video, the tragedy was caused from the spewing fuel catching fire from nearby engine exhaust flames and damaging flight control.
  • 196. World Trade Center Collapse
    Tubularconstructed building.
    Well designed and strong.
    Strong but not from buckling.
    Supports lost at crash site, and the floor supported inner and outer tubular structures.
    Heat from burning fuel adds to loss of structural support from softening of steel (strength vs. T, stress-strain behavior).
    Building “pancakes” due to enormous buckling loads.
    See estimate by Tom Mackie in MIE
  • 197. Alloying and Diffusion: Advances and Failures
    • Alloying can lead to new or enhanced properties, e.g. Li, Zr added to Al (advanced precipitation hardened 767 aircraft skin).
    • 198. It can also be a problem, e.g. Ga is a fast diffuser at Al grain boundaries and make Al catastrophically brittle(noplastic behaviorvs.strain).
    • 199. Need to know T vs. c phase diagrams for what alloying does.
    • 200. Need to know T-T-T (temp - time - transition) diagrams to know treatment.
    T vs c for Ga-In
    Bringing an plane out of the sky!
    When Ga (in liquid state) is alloyed
    to Al it diffusesrapidly alonggrain boundaries(more volume) making bonds weaker and limiting plastic response.
    Liquid at R.T.
    All these are concepts we will tackle.
