I introduce the thermodynamic and kinetic principles governing structural evolution in materials, and I use a combination of tutorial sessions and lectures to help students interpret phase diagrams, diffusion, and structural transformations in engineering materials.
In this course, we will use a combination of lectures and labs to understand the fundamental mechanism of deformation and microstructure-processing-property relationships in engineering materials.
This course aims to provide a comprehensive introduction to computational mechanics and thermodynamics of energy materials. Topics covered will include thermodynamics and kinetics of energy conversion and storage; material models; phase transformations.
This is a newly developed graduate course that introduces the fundamental mechanics and thermodynamics of energy storage and conversion materials, with an emphasis on the hands-on computational skills to interpret the underlying physical phenomena.
