Materials Science and Engineering -- Case Studies Illustrating an Interdisciplinary Field

Vilupanur Ravi

Department of Chemical & Material Engineering, Cal Poly Pomona

Materials science and engineering is a field that transcends the traditional boundaries between metallurgists, ceramicists, physicists, chemists and increasingly, biologists.   The scope of the field is usually depicted using a tetrahedron with structure, processing, properties and performance each situated at a vertex.   The inter-relationships among these attributes are best approached with illustrative examples.

In this talk, I will demonstrate the interdisciplinary character of this dynamic field using examples from my current and prior research.   Topics to be covered will be from a selection including ceramic and metal matrix composites, advanced coatings, advanced titanium alloys and biomaterials.

Refreshments at 4:00 PM. Seminar begins at 4:10 PM.
Building 8, Room 241
