ers.
Course Objective
All engineers are concerned with the structural safety, serviceability and the economics of the
constructions with which they are involved. The successful approach to the problem can only be
established through a sound knowledge of c
omputational methods of engineering and a thorough
understanding of the properties and behavior of engineering materials. Without a proper knowledge of
materials neither the structural safety and serviceability nor the economics can be achieved in
engineer
ing projects. The purpose of this course is to emphasize the basic principles necessary for an
understanding of the fundamental nature and properties of engineering materials and to make clear the
significance of these principles in engineering practice. T
he objective has been to present a unified
treatment of a variety of materials, stressing the fundamentals which provide a common basis for
explaining the behavior of the varied materials. The organization of the course material is such that, first,
the el
ements of the atomic and electronic structure of matter is introduced and the structure types of
solids are explained. Then the physicochemical aspects of the colloidal material used in industrial practice
is covered. A sequence proceeds from atomic struct
ures to coarser structures, from the simple to the
more complex. Such a sequence from atoms to crystals, to phases, to microstructures and to
macrostructures is followed because the grosser structures and properties depend on the finer structural
character
istics. Considering the importance of the mechanical behavior of materials and the limitation of
the course period, emphasis is given to the phenomena associated with the mechanical behavior of the
materials and their structural characteristics. Elasticity
, plasticity and flow phenomena are explained by
reference to the main types of engineering materials and a discussion of the strength and other related
properties of the materials follows. Finally the effect of radiation damage on the mechanical propertie
s of
materials is briefly discussed. The course is already taught to the civil engineering and environmental
engineering students with the contents written in the "learn to how syllabus" section. It is believed that
