Engineering McGraw Hill New York NY ISBN 978 0 07 352924 0 5h Edition 2010 2 Lab Materials Science and Engineering Laboratory C Hsu California State University Chico 2013 Available as pdf on BlackBoard Learn Course Description Study of the structure processing properties performance and applications common engineering materials including metals polymers and composites Applied knowledge of material properties as engineering design parameters Advanced manufacturing processes including micro fabrication are discussed Course Goal Provide students a thorough study of metals and polymer materials material properties and testing methods Student Learning Outcomes Upon successful completion of this course students will be able to 1 Understand crystal structures and microstructures of metals and molecular structure of polymers 2 Understand the microstructural imperfections and their effects on properties of metals and polymers 3 Understand Fick s Law and diffusion for steady and non steady state cases 4 Understand Elastic and plastic deformation in metals 5 Understand fracture mechanics in metals 6 Understand the relationship between cold working and hardness and tensile strength 7 Understand the mechanical testing and the use of stress strain diagram information in engineering 8 Understand oxidation of metals and the effects of corrosion in mechanical designs 9 Understand simple property analysis of particulate and fiber reinforced polymer composites 10 Measure the hardness of several metal and plastic materials 11 Measure the tensile properties of plastics and metals Page 1 of 3 12 Measure the thermal properties of plastics 13 Measure the chemical structure of transparent plastics 14 Measure the stress concentration of rubber near holes 15 Record data in a log book and write technical test reports Course Usage of Blackboard Learn Copies of the course syllabus lectures and homework assignments may be found on Blackboard Learn You are responsible for regularly checking the online resources which is accessed through the Chico State Portal at http portal csuchico edu Safety Laboratory Safety Policies and Procedures are strictly enforced in the labs Students will be given safety training and are expected to become familiar with the safety policies and procedures Each student is required to submit a signed acknowledgement form for safety training before the first lab experiment A sticker will be placed on the student s campus ID card upon completion of training General 1 Absences are allowed only for illness doctor s note required or other serious reasons with permission prior to the class There will be grade penalty for absence arriving after roll call or leaving before completion of the experiment Three or more absences will result in an incomplete for MECH 210 2 Quizzes will be given in class usually on Fridays after the discussion of the chapter materials and will be similar to homework problems in that chapter 3 Homework problems will be available on BlackBoard Learn You are required to do the homework and submit the answers online by the due date 4 Grades will be reduced one full grade for each week assignment is late 5 Students run experiments in groups all data collection in lab books are individual work Students are encouraged to work together in data processing but printing copies of the same figures from others is not allowed University policies due process and sanctions for academic dishonesty are followed 6 All cellular phones should be turned off in the lecture and lab except with instructor s permission 7 Shirts and shoes are required in the laboratory Sandals and open toe shoes are not allowed for safety reason Students who are not safely dressed will be asked to leave the laboratory resulting in an absence 8 You are responsible for understanding the policies and procedures about add drops academic renewal etc found http www csuchico edu catalog You should be aware of the new deadlines and penalties for adding and dropping classes 9 If you need course adaptations or accommodations because of a disability or chronic illness or if you need to make special arrangements in case the building must be evacuated please make an appointment with me as soon as possible or see me during office hours Grading 1 2 3 4 5 Midterm exam Final exam Quizzes after each chapter Lab
