About the course
This course will provide a comprehensive overview of materials manufacturing processes from the vantage point of elevated-temperature interactions among materials that manifest themselves in a wide variety of physical phenomena, and material properties and performance.
Robust manufacturing technology demands a scientific understanding of the metallurgical and materials mechanisms and processes underlying such interactions. The first one-third of the course content will provide solid foundational knowledge about diverse liquid-state, solidstate and vapor-state manufacturing processes.
The remainder of the course will comprehensively cover hightemperature interactions, interface formation, and application to metal-matrix and ceramic-matrix composites, melting technology, refractory design, melt oxidation, liquid metal corrosion, solidification, crystal purification, infiltration, soldering, brazing, coating, sintering, and emerging 3D printing and other advanced processes. Material interactions at high temperatures are sensitive to a myriad of material and test parameters such as contact time, temperature, alloying, roughness, composition, coatings, atmosphere and crystal orientation among others.
- manufacturing and materials science, solid-state and vapor-state manufacturing
