Chemistry Games: Plastics

Play a game and find out about a Nobel Prize awarded discovery ... (more)

Play a game and find out about a Nobel Prize awarded discovery or work! For thousands of years people have been using silk, wool, cotton, wood and leather. In the last century or so, we have added plastics to this list. Key to developing the plastics we now use were the discoveries made by the Nobel Prize awarded scientists Ziegler and Natta in the 1950s. There are two major groups of plastics - some melt when heated and others don't. Find out why! (less)

This subject provides an introduction to modeling and simulation (IM/S), covering continuum methods, atomistic and molecular simulation (e.g. molecular dynamics) as well as quantum mechanics. These tools play an increasingly important role in modern engineering. You will get hands-on training in both the fundamentals and applications of these methods to key engineering problems. The lectures will provide an exposure to areas of application, based on the scientific exploitation of the power of computation. We will use web based applets for simulations and thus extensive programming skills are not required. (less)

Examines the ways in which people in ancient and contemporary societies have selected, evaluated, and used materials of nature, transforming them to objects of material culture. Some examples: glass in ancient Egypt and Rome; powerful metals in the Inka empire; rubber processing in ancient Mexico. Explores ideological and aesthetic criteria often influential in materials development. Laboratory/workshop sessions provide hands-on experience with materials discussed in class. Subject complements 3.091. Enrollment may be limited. (less)

Mathematics for Materials Scientists and Engineers, Fall 2003

Mathematics for Materials Scientists and Engineers, Fall 2003

The class will cover mathematical techniques necessary for understanding of materials science ... (more)

The class will cover mathematical techniques necessary for understanding of materials science and engineering topics such as energetics, materials structure and symmetry, materials response to applied fields, mechanics and physics of solids and soft materials. The class uses examples from 3.012 to introduce mathematical concepts and materials-related problem solving skills. Topics include linear algebra and orthonormal basis, eigenvalues and eigenvectors, quadratic forms, tensor operations, symmetry operations, calculus of several variables, introduction to complex analysis, ordinary and partial differential equations, theory of distributions, fourier analysis and random walks.

Physics Games: InvarĀ® and Steel Alloys

Physics Games: InvarĀ® and Steel Alloys

Play a game and find out about a Nobel Prize awarded discovery ... (more)

Play a game and find out about a Nobel Prize awarded discovery or work! Alloys are mixtures of substances in which the resulting material has metallic properties. They are usually produced by melting the mixture of ingredients. Steel, brass and amalgam are a few examples of an alloy. Invar, from the word "invariable", is a special steel alloy - used today in toasters and CRT-monitors for example. The Swiss physicist Charles Edouard Guillaume was awarded the 1920 Nobel Prize in Physics for discovering Invar. (less)
