Explore the intriguing world of Material Science, from the molecular intricacies of concrete to the engineering marvels of silo design, understanding the critical factors influencing their structural integrity. Using advanced virtual simulations, you'll demystify the principles of Bragg's Law and explore the fascinating realm of quasi-elastic materials.

Foundations and Applications

Unlock the secrets of material strength and durability by grading aggregates, performing slump, shear, and soil mechanics tests, and analyzing neutron transmission images. Use these skills to understand the complex nature of concrete and learn how its components contribute to its vast applications in construction, design an effective silo considering the properties of the material it stores, and interact with the components of a rechargeable Li-ion battery. 

Learning Objectives

  • Describe the composition and properties of concrete
  • Apply principles of engineering and design to create stable silo structures
  • Explain Bragg's Law and its significance in materials science
  • Analyze the results from standard tests used in materials science research to determine the properties and characteristics of matter
