Nanotechnology is defined as the understanding and control of materials at dimensions of roughly 1 to 100 nanometers. Because of their unique size-tunable properties (e.g., the quantum size effects) and large surface...
Writing a Book on the Role of Materials Science in Manufacturing for Instruction and Research: Lessons Learned
In 2006, the author and two colleagues published a materials science book that tried to integrate basic elements of processing science and manufacturing technology from a materials scientists viewpoint. The book project...
In the majority of engineering disciplines, MSE provides resources and applications with many other areas of engineering, e.g., design, structures, mechanics, and manufacturing. For the students to transfer and...
A Laboratory Session Development: Study of Mechanical Properties of Petroleum-Based Plastic Compost Bag and Biodegradable Plastic Compost Bag
There is a global interest in replacing oil-based synthetic plastics with biodegradable materials in order to enhance the biodegradability of the plastic materials and to reduce the amount of persistent plastic waste....
Effective engineered composite design activities require predictive and quantitative methodology. This research incorporates engineering design, using smart spreadsheets, into a laboratory activity focusing on columns...
