  • Schuh, Chris (2003-12)
    The central point of this course is to provide a physical basis that links the structure of metals with their properties. With this understanding in hand, the concepts of alloy design and microstructural engineering are ...
  • Ross, Caroline A. (2003-12)
    Explores the relationships which exist between the performance of electrical, optical, and magnetic devices and the microstructural characteristics of the materials from which they are constructed. Features a device-motivated ...
  • Powell, Adam C.; Zhou, Bo (2002-12)
    Solid-state diffusion, homogeneous and heterogeneous chemical reactions, and spinodal decomposition. Heat conduction in solids, convective and radiative heat transfer boundary conditions. Fluid dynamics, 1-D solutions to ...
  • Allen, Samuel M. (2003-12)
    Laws of thermodynamics applied to materials and materials processes. Solution theory. Equilibrium diagrams. Overview of fluid transport processes. Kinetics of processes that occur in materials, including diffusion, phase ...
  • Gibson, Lorna J.; Tuller, Harry L.; Fitzgerald, Eugene (2002)
    Electrical, optical, magnetic, and mechanical properties of metals, semiconductors, ceramics and polymers. Discussion of roles of bonding, structure (crystalline, defect, energy band and microstructure) and composition in ...
  • Gibson, Lorna J.; Suresh, S. (Subra); Mills, John Philip (2003-06)
    Phenomenology of mechanical behavior of materials at the macroscopic level. Relationship of mechanical behavior to material structure and mechanisms of deformation and failure. Topics include: elasticity, viscoelasticity, ...
  • Gibson, Lorna J. (2004-06)
    Phenomenology of mechanical behavior of materials at the macroscopic level. Relationship of mechanical behavior to material structure and mechanisms of deformation and failure. Topics include: elasticity, viscoelasticity, ...
  • Marzari, Nicola; Ceder, Gerbrand; Morgan, Dane (2003-06)
    Theory and application of atomistic computer simulations to model, understand, and predict the properties of real materials. Energy models, from classical potentials to first-principles approaches. Density-functional theory ...
  • Russell, Kenneth (2003-06)
    Discusses structure-property relationships in metallic alloys selected to illustrate some basic concepts of physical metallurgy and alloy design. Fundamentals of annealing, spinodal decomposition, nucleation, growth, and ...
  • Russell, Kenneth; van Vliet, Krystyn (2004-06)
    This course examines how the presence of 1-, 2- and 3D defects and second phases control the mechanical, electromagnetic and chemical behavior of metals and alloys. It considers point, line and interfacial defects in the ...
  • Kimerling, Lionel C. (2004-06)
    Optical and optoelectronic properties of semiconductors, ceramics, and polymers. Electronic structure, refractive index, electroluminescence, electro-optic and magneto-optic effects, and laser phenomena. Microphotonic ...
  • Roylance, David (2003-06)
    Relation among chemical composition, physical structure, and mechanical behavior of plastics or synthetic high polymers. Study of types of polymers; fundamentals of viscoelastic phenomena such as creep, stress relaxation, ...
  • Gibson, Lorna J. (2004-12)
    Why are things in nature shaped the way they are? How do birds fly? Why do bird nests look the way they do? How do woodpeckers peck? These are the types of questions Dr. Lorna Gibson's freshman seminar at MIT has been ...
  • Gibson, Lorna J. (2003-06)
    Why are things in nature shaped the way they are? Why can't trees grow taller than they are? Why is grass skinny and hollow? Why are some leaves full of holes? These are the types of questions Dr. Lorna Gibson's freshman ...
  • Sass, Lawrence (2004-06)
    This is an advanced subject in computer modeling and CAD CAM fabrication in building large-scale prototypes and digital mock-ups within a studio setting. Prototypes and mock-ups are developed with the aid of outside ...
  • Duffy, Francis, 1940-; Tsakonas, Konstantinos G. (2003-06)
    This is an interdisciplinary workshop, not a design workshop in the ordinary sense. It is certainly intended for graduate students in architecture but also for students in the Center for Real Estate (CRE), and for students ...
  • Duffy, Francis, 1940- (2002-12)
    The theme of this Workshop is the design of the changing workplace. The objective of this workshop is to make MIT graduate students fully aware of emerging technological and social trends that are revolutionizing the working ...
  • Sass, Lawrence (2004-06)
    Explores the role of computer visualization as a representational medium. Visualization is widely used in scientific, engineering, and design disciplines to help people understand complex phenomena and constructs. The key ...
  • Sass, Lawrence (2003-06)
    Design Fabrication is an introductory course in the field of advanced computing, prototyping and building fabrication. The class is focused on the relationship between design, various forms of computer modeling both explicit ...
  • Beinart, Julian (2004-06)
    Theories about cities and the form that settlements should take will be discussed. Attempts will be made at a distinction between descriptive and normative theory, by examining examples of various theories of city form ...
