Summary

 

Properties 1 - MATE40006

Role

Lecturer

Nanomaterials 2 - MATE97019

Aims

This course is designed to provide the students with an insight into the emerging applications of nanotechnology through a series of topically relevant case studies. The underlying nanoscience as well as the engineering aspects of material and device operation is given.  The broader societal impacts of nanotechnology and its impact on human health are explored.

Nanomaterials 2 - MATE97019

Aims

This course is designed to provide the students with an insight into the emerging applications of nanotechnology through a series of topically relevant case studies.

Role

Lecturer

Microstructure - MATE95004

Aims

This course is designed to allow students to progress in their understanding of thermodynamics and kinetics so as to allow them to investigate, explain and quantify the formation of microstructures by either solidification or by solid state phase transformations. It introduces them to a wide range of solid state phase transformations and through detailed analysis equips them with an insight into the scientific concepts underpinning the control of microstructures in primarily metals but also to some extent ceramics. This course also aims to: show how equilibrium phase diagrams can be used to predict the solidification process and the microstructure of materials that have been crystallised from a melt under equilibrium conditions; consider the effect of non-equilibrium solidification processes; and introduce examples from alloy, ceramic and glass-ceramic systems.
