Structure-Property Relationships in Materials

Here are links of PPT PowerPoint Presentations, pdf PDF documents and word Word documents.


Introduction to the multiscale structure effects on material
properties. For MSE students, this is a survey course that will lay
the foundation for future in-depth courses on specific properties
of materials. For non-MSE students, the course will provide a
background in materials and may serve as part of the program of
study for a minor in materials.

Topics outline:

  • Atoms
  • Bonding
  • Solid Solutions and Alloys
  • Phase Transitions
  • Elements of Crystallography
  • Structure-Property Relations: Neumann’s Law
  • Thermal Properties
  • Optical Properties
  • Electrical Properties
  • Dielectric Properties
  • Magnetic Properties
  • Mechanical Properties
