This activity will demonstrate the process of work hardening and annealing of a copper. Students will get the opportunity to see the hardening of metal by deformation, experience the process of work hardening, explain...
This experiment will demonstrate the effects of changes in the crystal structure of metals, particularly in high carbon steels and in the shape memory alloy Nitinol. Students will learn the effects of phase changes on...
This learning activity will allow students the opportunity to observe long term corrosion of materials. The instructor will set up several jars or beakers filled with either fresh or salt water, and the class will...
This lesson plan introduces students to the properties of metals using the example of a paper clip. A paper clip will fail after being bent many times, illustrating the concept of "fatigue." The fatigue properties of...
