MDI 332LEC Foundations of Materials Thermodynamics and Structures


This course introduces classical thermodynamics theory and basic thermodynamic principles. It will apply thermodynamic concepts to the understanding and analysis of phase stability, crystal structure, equilibrium properties of materials, and the linkage between thermodynamics, crystal structure/molecular symmetry and equilibrium properties of materials. The interpretation and extraction of information from phase diagrams will be covered, particularly as relates to crystal structure and phase distributions. Students will be introduced to the development and the use of thermodynamic and crystallographic databases.
