Official Description

Course Information: Same as CEE 300. See CEE 300. Class Schedule Information: Students must register for one lab and one lecture section.

Detailed Course Description

Macroscopic mechanical behavior in terms of phenomena at the nanometer and micrometer levels for the three types of engineering materials (metals, ceramics, and polymers) with emphasis on specific materials used in civil engineering -- steel, rocks, clay, portland cement concrete, asphaltic concrete, and wood. Same as CEE 300. Prerequisite: Completion of Composition I general education requirement; CHEM 104 and TAM 251. 4 undergraduate hours.

Topics:

Lecture
Introduction to materials behavior (1hr)
Bonding and molecular structure (3hr)
Elastic behavior (3hr)
Colloidal materials; microstructure of concrete (2hr)
