2 What are Materials? That’s easy! Look around. Our clothes are made of materials, our homes are made of materials - mostly manufactured. Glass windows, vinyl siding, metal silverware, ceramic dishes…Most things are made from many different kinds of materials.
3 Materials Science and Engineering It all about the raw materials and how they are processedThat is why we call it materials ENGINEERINGMinor differences in Raw materials or processing parameters can mean major changes in the performance of the final material or product
4 Materials Science and Engineering An interdisciplinary study that combines metallurgy, physics, chemistry, and engineering to solve real-world problems with real-world materials in an acceptable societal and economical manner. (VCSU, 2006)
5 Materials Science and Engineering The discipline of investigating the relationships that exist between the structures and properties of materials.Materials EngineeringThe discipline of designing or engineering the structure of a material to produce a predetermined set of properties based on established structure-property correlation.Four Major Components of Material Science and Engineering:Structure of MaterialsProperties of MaterialsProcessing of MaterialsPerformance of Materials
6 Materials Science - Example The dramatic role of iron throughout the ages is not really the result of it being "strong". In reality, iron has been important because we can change its properties by heating and cooling it.The ability to change the properties and/or behavior of a material is what makes most materials useful and this is at the heart of materials science! (MSECRC, 2006)
7 History of MaterialsMan has been studying materials since before leaving the cave.Due to lack of communication, early man spent hundreds of millennia experimenting with stone tools.The first metal tools appeared perhaps only six thousand years ago.
8 History of MaterialsThe discovery of “Iceman” in the Alps in 1991 gave significant information on early Copper age. He was carrying a copper axe.It is dated at about 5300 years, when the first pyramids were built.
9 History of MaterialsAs our knowledge of materials grows, so does the sophistication of our tools.The more sophisticated our tools, the more sophisticated our accomplishments.

16 Introduction List the Major Types of MATERIALS That You Know: METALS CERAMICSPOLYMERSSEMICONDUCTORSCOMPOSITESADVANCED MATERIALS
17 Kinds of MaterialsMetals: are materials that are normally combinations of "metallic elements". Metals usually are good conductors of heat and electricity. Also, they are quite strong but malleable and tend to have a lustrous look when polished.Ceramics: are generally compounds between metallic and nonmetallic elements. Typically they are insulating and resistant to high temperatures and harsh environments. (MSECRC, 2006)
18 Several uses of steel and pressed aluminum. MetalsSeveral uses of steel and pressed aluminum.
19 CeramicsExamples of ceramic materials ranging from household to high performance combustion engines which utilize both metals and ceramics.
20 Kinds of MaterialsPolymers: (or plastics) are generally organic compounds based upon carbon and hydrogen. They are very large molecular structures. Usually they are low density and are not stable at high temperatures.Semiconductors: have electrical properties intermediate between metallic conductors and ceramic insulators. Also, the electrical properties are strongly dependent upon small amounts of impurities. (MSECRC, 2006)
21 Polymers include “Plastics” and rubber materials
22 SemiconductorsMicro-Electrical-Mechanical Systems (MEMS)Si wafer for computer chip devices.
23 Kinds of MaterialsComposites: consist of more than one material type. Fiberglass, a combination of glass and a polymer, is an example. Concrete and plywood are other familiar composites. Many new combinations include ceramic fibers in metal or polymer matrix. (MSECRC, 2006)
24 CompositesPolymer composite materials: reinforcing glass fibers in a polymer matrix.
25 Newer Branches of Materials Science Nanotechnology: a relatively new area grown out of techniques used to manufacture semiconductor circuits. Machines can be produced on a microscopic level. Example - miniature robots to do surgery inside the body or miniature chemical laboratories and instruments that will continuously analyze blood and dispense medications inside the body. (VCSU, 2006)
26 NanoTechAs Hygienic as a Shark? Yes, they avoid pesky algae and bacteria by way of an ingenious skin design. Microorganisms prefer flat surfaces, which allow them to form large colonies or biofilms. But unlike most other fish, sharks don't have flat scales. Instead, they have dermal denticles—ridged, tooth-like scales covering their body (pictured here). These bumpy "teeth" create a rough surface that biofilms can't colonize or thrive on, which contributes to the shark's naturally bacteria-free status.In the not too distant future, dozens of intriguing nanodevices such as the nanotubes above may transform cancer diagnosis, treatment, and prevention.
