BMM 220 - Materials and Processes in Manufacturing

3 credits (PREREQUISITE: NONE)

Students are provided with essential information on material properties, material behaviors and material manufacturing processes. The atomic, crystal, grain and defect structure will be introduced, and their effect on the mechanical properties of materials will be presented. Equilibrium phase diagrams will be discussed. An understanding of the properties of iron alloys and steels will be developed. Material processing techniques such as heat treatment, casting, metal forming, welding, coatings and adhesive bonding will be covered. Powder metallurgy processing and material processes will be introduced along with a brief introduction to non-destructive test (NDT) methods. (F, Sp, Su)
