Note: Material science is the basic knowledge end of materials knowledge spectrum, where as,  material engineering is applied knowledge end and there is no demarcation line between the two  subjects of interest    Evolution of Engineering Materials Why Material Science & Engineering is important to technologists?  Examples: • Mechanical engineers search for high temp material so that gas turbines, jet engines etc can operate more efficiently and wear resistance materials to manufacture bearing materials • Electrical engineers search for materials by which electrical devices or machines can be operated at a faster rate with minimum power losses • Aerospace & automobile engineers search for materials having high strength-toweight ratio • Electronic engineers search for material that are useful in the fabrication & miniaturization of electronic devices • Chemical engineers search for highly corrosion-resistant materials Note: All these demands may be fulfilled when the internal structure and engineering properties are known to an engineer or technologist

Classification  It is the systematic arrangement or division of materials into groups on the basis of some common characteristic 1. According to General Properties 2. According to Nature of Materials 3. According to Applications  1. According to General Properties (a). Metals (e.g. iron, aluminium, copper, zinc, lead, etc) Iron as the base metal, and range from plain carbon (> 98 % Fe) to (i). Ferrous: high alloy steel (< 50 % alloying elements), e.g. cast iron, wrought iron, steel, alloys like high-speed steel, spring steel, etc (ii). Non-Ferrous: Rest of the all other metals and their alloys, e.g. copper, aluminium, zinc lead, alloys like brass, bronze, duralumin, etc (b). Non-Metals (e.g. leather, rubber, asbestos, plastics, etc) 2. According to Nature of Materials (a). Metals: e.g. Iron & Steel, Alloys &Superalloys, Intermetallic Compounds, etc (b). Ceramics: e.g. Structural Ceramics (high-temperature load bearing), Refractories (corrosion-resistant, insulating), Whitewares (porcelains), Glass, Electrical Ceramics (capacitors, insulators, transducers), Chemically Bonded Ceramics (cement & concrete) (c).Polymers: e.g. Plastics, Liquid Crystals, Adhesives (d). Electronic Materials: e.g. Silicon, Germanium, Photonic materials (solid-state lasers, LEDs) (e). Composites: e.g. Particulate composites (small particles embedded in a different material), Laminate composites (golf club shafts, tennis rackets), Fiber reinforced composites (fiberglass) (f). Biomaterials: e.g. Man-made proteins (artificial bacterium), Biosensors, etc (g). Advanced / Smart Materials: e.g. materials in computers (VCRs, CD Players, etc), fibreoptic systems, spacecrafts, aircrafts, rockets, shape-memory alloys, piezoelectric ceramics, magnetostrictive materials, optical fibres, microelectromechanical (MEMs) devices, electrorheological / magnetorheological fluids, Nanomaterials, etc 3. According to Applications (a). Electrical Materials: e.g. conductors, insulators, dielectrics, etc

Difference between Metals & Non-Metals Property Metals Non-Metals Structure Crystalline Amorphic State Generally solids at room temp. Gaseous & solid at ordinary temp. Luster Metallic luster No metallic luster (except iodine & graphite) Conductivity Good conductors electricity Malleability Malleable Not malleable Ductility Ductile Not ductile Hardness Generally hard Hardness varies Electrolysis Form anions Form anioins Excitation of valence electron by e.m.f. Easy Difficult Density High Low of heat & Bad conductors 1. Material Properties  • Physical: e.g. appearance, shape, weight, boiling point, melting point, freezing point, density, glass transition temperature, permeability • Mechanical: e.g. strength (tensile, compressive, shear, torsion, bending), elasticity, plasticity, ductility, malleability, rigidity, toughness, hardness, brittleness, impact, fatigue, creep, strain hardening, Bauschinger effect, strain rate effect, vibration resistance, wear • Thermal: e.g. thermal conductivity, expansion coefficient, resistivity, thermal shock resistance, thermal diffusivity
