1 Microstructure and Properties
MSE Fall, 2002 (1st mini-course) Prof. A. D. Rollett

2 Course Content is the first of a pair of (mini-)courses that describe the relationship between materials microstructure and properties. deals mainly with single phase microstructures: the companion course, , deals with multi-phase microstructures. Technological materials (except Si-based) are multi-phase.

3 Cheating Policy Students are referred to the University Policy About Cheating and Plagiarism (Organization Announcement No. 297, 6116/80). It shall be the policy in this course to discourage cheating to the extent possible, rather than to try to trap and to punish. On the other hand, in fairness to all concerned, cheating and plagiarism will be treated severely. Cheating includes but is not necessarily limited to: 1.Plagiarism, explained below. 2.Submission of work that is not the student's own for reports or quizzes. 3.Submission or use of falsified data. Plagiarism includes (but is not limited to) failure to indicate the source with quotation marks or footnotes, where appropriate, if any of the following are reproduced in the work submitted by a student: 1.A graph or table of data. 2. Specific language. 3.Exact wording taken from the work, published or unpublished, of another person."

12 Homework, Test Review Mid-course Test/ Q1. What is the rule for determining the slip direction in a close-packed material?Close packed directions have the smallest Burgers vector and therefore correspond to the direction of slip. Mid-course Test/ Q4. For a steel with 0.8% carbon (by weight), sketch the microstructures that you would expect to observe based on the following thermal histories.(a)Slow cooled (normalized)(b)Quenched from 1030K (into water)(c)Quenched from 1030K (as in part b), then tempered (annealed) at 820K.(d)Quenched from 1030K (as in part b), then tempered at 970K.

13 Homework, Test Review, contd.
Mid-course Test/ Q8. [10 points] A specimen of Al and a specimen of Fe are deformed to the same stress at room temperature. The shear modulus of Al is ~ 27GPa, and the shear modulus of Fe is ~80 GPa. Assume that the Taylor factor is the same in both materials. The Burgers vector of Al is nm and the Burgers vector in iron is nm. Assume that any other constants are unity.(a) What is the ratio of their dislocation contents (densities)? Express your answer as (Al):(Fe) = x:y(b) Based on your answer to (a), what is the ratio of the stored energies in the two specimens? Express your answer as E(Al):E(Fe) = x:y.Answer: (a) the ratio of dislocation densities is given by (Al):(Fe) = (GFebFe/GAlbAl)2 = {(80x0.249)/(27x0.283)}2 = {2.607}2 = 6.80(b) The ratio of stored energies is given by the ratio of shear moduli; E(Al):E(Fe) = GAlbAl2Al: GFebFe2Fe = (GAlbAl2/GFebFe2) x (GFebFe/GAlbAl)2 = GFe/GAl= 80/27 = 2.96.

14 Homework 4 Review, contd. HWK4/ Q1e. The orientation of several grains has been characterized in a polycrystal: their orientations with respect to the tensile axis are [259], [001], [011] and [111]. Calculate their Schmid factors and calculate their average in order to estimate the yield stress of the polycrystal. Answer: the average Schmid factor = ( )/4= Therefore the polycrystal should yield at 190/0.405 = 469 MPa. HWK4/ Q2a. The expected answer was that the Orowan stress would become larger than the Hall-Petch stress. This suggests that generating/nucleating dislocations inside each grain will eventually become more difficult than propagating them from one grain to the next. HWK4/ Q2b. The expected answer was that you would find out that the creep rate is far too large for the high strength at small grain size to be useful!

15 Homework 3 Review HWK 3/ Q4. The “Goss” orientation, {110}//ND, <001>//RD, was chosen so as to place a soft direction in the rolling plane which itself is a low index plane. This simplifies the domain structure considerably. It also is representative of a technologically significant material, i.e. transformer steel. HWK 3/ B:Q1. The difficulty here is (a) to associate matrices with symmetry operations and (b) to do the matrix arithmetic correctly. Much better to use a Math package. Training in Mathematica needed? B2. [10 points] (a) The thermal conductivity of a material has been measured ….. (b) Comment on how you might design such an experiment. Hint: a sketch would be useful. The key here is to realize that you must impose the thermal gradient in one direction and simultaneously measure the heat flow in different direction!

16 Labs Lab 1 = Investigation of recrystallization with measurement of grain size (comparison of area versus line intercept methods). Purpose of the lab: illustration of basic method of influencing microstructure development, microstructure quantification. Lab 2 = Investigation of mechanical properties as a function of microstructure, as illustrated by different heat treatments of two steels. Purpose of the lab: learn about how strongly microstructure affects properties in a classical (and useful) system. Also to learn how to quantify (mechanical) properties.

17 301 Lab 2 Grading The grading will be according the following: - 35% presentation skills (facing the audience, speaking clearly, explaining each slide…) - 20% technical content of presentation (correctness of introduction, procedures, results, discussion) - 20% answering questions from audience and instructor - 25% quality of the slides set (as the written documentation of the Lab report): this part of the grade is common to all members the group if a single submission is made by the group.

18 Test, Exams, Grading Policy
Homeworks: 1 per week 100 points Quizzes: 1 per week 20 points Exams: two: see weighting below Grading Policy A > 85% B > 75% C > 65% D > 55% The instructor will request an Oral exam in borderline cases. Weighting (%): Homeworks 15 Quizzes 5 Lab 30 Exams 50 Notes: the distribution between the two exams is to be determined. The quizzes are mainly there to encourage students to stay on top of the material. The 30% weighting for the Lab (or Project) reflects the number of units assigned to the Lab part of the class.
