Materials Processing (3-3)
Analysis of the unit processes involved in ceramic production and specialized processes such as zone refining, chemical vapor deposition, plasma spraying, and surface modification using the principles of material and energy balance, fluid flow, heat transfer, reaction kinetics and the thermodynamics. Survey of specific processing techniques for materials such as silicon, glass, ceramic magnets, silicon carbide, silicon nitride, and ceramic superconductors. Prerequisite: MME 4303 with a grade of "C" or better. Laboratory fee required.
