BIRLA GOA CAMPUS INSTRUCTION DIVISION SECOND SEMESTER 2011-2012 Course Handout (Part II) 04-01-2012 In addition to Part I (General Handout for all courses appended to the Time Table), this portion gives further specific details regarding the course. Course No.: ES C242 Course Title: STRUCTURE AND PROPERTIES OF MATERIALS Instructor-in-charge: Raghavendra D. Naik INSTRUCTORS: P. Nandakumar, P.N.Deepak, Raghavendra Datta Naik, Ranjit Patil, Rabi Narayan Panda, Vikas Chaudhari, K. P. Jayadevan Course Description: The course gives an introduction to the structure of materials (at the atomic and microscopic level). The relation between structure and properties of materials is also highlighted. The course discusses the structure and properties of Metallic, Ceramic and Polymeric materials. Scope and objective of the course: The objective of the course is to give a basic understanding of the relation between the structure and properties of materials. Structure of metallic, Ceramic and Polymeric materials will be discussed. The main objective of the course is to show how the type of bonding and crystal structure affect the mechanical, electrical and chemical properties of these materials.
