E661: Materials Gone Wrong! in Rainstorm Spring 2021 (May. 15 - 16, 2021)
It's a bad day if your phone screen cracks, but it's something else entirely if your airplane falls out of the sky. Learn about the science and engineering behind materials failures in history through exciting demonstrations and Q&A with Materials Science Graduate Students. Emphasis on exciting demonstrations, not a boring lecture! We'll experience first-hand how liquid metals can catastrophically destroy structural materials in applications like space exploration and aerospace. We'll explore how many materials can change dramatically with changes in structure, temperature, and other conditions. We’re happy to bring our demonstrations to you virtually! You'll walk away from this class with greater knowledge of the atomic structure of materials and a deeper appreciation for the diverse properties of the materials that surround our everyday life.
