The goal of 3.044 is to teach cost-effective and sustainable production of solid material with a desired geometry, structure or distribution of structures, and production volume. Toward this end, it is organized around different types of phase transformations which determine the structure in various processes for making materials, in roughly increasing order of entropy change during those transformations: solid heat treatment, liquid-solid processing, fluid behavior, deformation processing, and vapor-solid processing. The course ends with several lectures that place the subject in the context of society at large.
diffusion, chemical reaction, phase transformation, heat transport, mass transport, fluid, fluid flow, recycling, cost modeling, multilayer, biot number, radiation, convection, titanium, moving bodies, Reynolds number, turbulence, reactor, deformation, polymer, vapor transport, nanotechnology
