Symposium on Teaching of Materials: New Type of Course on Engineering Materialsby Joseph Marin,
Serial Information: Journal of the Engineering Mechanics Division, 1962, Vol. 88, Issue 4, Pg. 83-88
Document Type: Journal Paper
A first course in engineering materials dealing with mechanical behavior of engineering materials from a macroscopic point of view is described. Reasons are given for selecting this type of course rather than a solid state physics type of treatment as a first course in materials. The material that can be covered in the type of treatment proposed is described and illustrations of current engineering developments that have emphasized the importance of the subject matter selected are presented.
