The basic mechanisms of mass transportW and phase transformationsW in materials are developed from thermodynamic and kinetic principles. Topics include phase equilibriaW, diffusionW, solidificationW and solid-state transformations. The application of these phenomena to materials processing methods, such as castingW, formingW, heat treatmentW and sinteringW is described.

Energy and Materials Efficiency Project[edit]

With abundant readily accessible materials and extremely inexpensive energy - both materials and energy efficiency have been regrettably downplayed and even ignored in industrial materials processing. In the final section of this course - students will develop review articles of materials efficiency and energy efficiency in materials processing in order to explore techniques in more detail than the text.
