Description: Spring 2018: This course provides an introduction to solidification of metals and alloys. The course starts with thermodynamics of phase equilibria and phase diagrams, and moves on to solidification as a phase transformation phenomenon. Effect of cooling rate on the development of microstructures and defects, and rapid solidification which leads to the formation of metastable structures, including metallic glass formation will be examined. This will be a one (1) hour course. Repeatable for Credit.
