Some strict instructions on the answer script beginning page

:

1. START EVERY QUESTION IN A FRESH PAGE. ORDER OF QUESTION NUMBER MAY BE
ANYTHING, BUT EVERY SUB-SECTIONS OF ANY PARTICULAR QUESTION SHOULD BE
ANSWERED IN THE RIGHT SEQUENCE (Example q2 may be answered first, but Q2a must be
followed by Q2b followed by Q2c). EVERY SUB-SECTION OF ANY PARTICULAR QUESTION MUST
BE CLEARLY SEPARATED FROM THE FOLLOWING SUB-SECTION BY DRAWING A LINE USING A
RULER.
2. SCHEMATIC DIAGRAMS, ASSISTING THE EXPLANATION IN AN ANSWER DESERVES MORE
CREDIT AS LONG AS IT IS RELEVANT. UNNECESSARY EXPLANATIONS, SCHEMATICS AND
POINTLESSLY WRITTEN ANSWERS FOR THE SAKE OF FILLING PAGES WILL ATTRACT PENALTIES.
3. DO NOT WRITE THE QUESTIONS AGAIN IN THE ANSWER SCRIPT.

1. Sketch stress-strain curves indicating qualitative features inherent of a) Ductile material, b)
Brittle Material and c) Elastomer. Very briefly explain the mechanisms responsible for difference
in stress-strain behavior indicating significant sections in the graph.
2. With the help of a schematic stress-strain curve, indicate the following: a) Resilience, b)
Toughness and c) Ductility.
3. Briefly explain the reason behind higher solubility of Fe-atoms in FCC Iron as compared to BCC
Iron.
*Proper schematics accompanying the explanation required?
4. State Gibbs Phase rule with the help of a schematic diagram for any system other than H2O.
5. Determine the Miller Indices for the following directions:

High Ductility d. a) How would you distinguish between steady state and unsteady state diffusion ? Explain with the help of an example. What is an error function? Explain very briefly.6. 10. State the differences between Monotectic. interstitial diffusion and self-diffusion. 14. why do the grains appear as bright and grain boundaries appear as dark? Sketch a neat diagram to represent typical microstructures of hypo- eutectoid steel labeling different structures. In any microscopic analysis of a microstructure. Eutectic. Indicate the scale of the sketch. Simple Cubic Structure at room temperature b. 13. explaining all the terms in the respective relationships. Give examples of materials having: a. High Resilience e. Peritectic and Eutectoid invariant reactions both with the help of schematics and equations. Write down Fick’s laws of diffusion as applied to steady and unsteady state diffusion. What is slip? Explain the concept of slip system briefly taking the example of FCC unit cell. High fatigue strength 9. Write down the conditions of solid solubility. 8. . 11. FCC at room temperature c. Explain the microscopic mechanism responsible for elastic and plastic deformation in any normal metal. 12. Compare and comment on the activation energies of vacancy formation.
