Course Description
:


This course e
mphasis
is
on structure
-
property relationships: chemical bonding, crystal structures, crystal
chemistry, electrical properties, thermal behavior, defect chemistry.
These principles will be applied to
material processing

(
powder preparation, sol
-
gel synthesis, densification, toughening mechanisms
) and to
specific ceramic material systems

(engineering ceramics,
glasses, dielectrics, superconductors,
aerogels
)
. Prerequi
site(s): MTSE 3010, MTSE 3020, MTSE 3040.


Course Objectives
:


By the end of the course, you
should
be able to:



Apply structure property relationships to the design and behavior to ceramic materials



Select ceramic materials for appropriate applications



Und
erstand point defects, defect equations, and doping in ceramics as well as how they apply to
transport and sintering



Use Ellingham and Pourbaix diagrams to predict chemical reactions and synthesize ceramic
materials


Course Requirements
:





Attendance is
expected for each class. If you are unable to make a class, please let me know so that
I don’t wait for you.




Required Textbook:

Modern Ceramic Engineering : Properties, Processing, and Use in Design, 3
rd

edition, 2005
,
D.W.
Richerson
,
CRC Press ISBN: 9781574446937




Exams
: There will be two exams and a final

worth 90% (30% each) of the total course grade
. Exams
will be based on the handouts, the text, and class discussions.




Missed Exams
:
Difficulties with exam dates must be
addressed by the Friday before the assigned
date.

If an exam is missed, the student must contact the instructor within 12 hours of the start of exam
to be permitted an opportunity to make
-
up the assignment.
Make
-
up exams will cover the same
material as th
e original exam, but may not
use the same questions.




Homework:

There will be two homeworks assigned during class and due one week after assigned.
The homeworks are worth 10% of the total grade.




Grades will be based on :

two

exams (30% each), two homew
orks (10%) and a final (3
0%)
