  1. nanoHUB Materials Simulation Homework: Engineering the Yield Stress of a Material

    26 Feb 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Marisol Koslowski, Tanya Faltens

    This homework assignment uses the nanoplasticity lab simulation tool to enable students to explore how grain size and the competing plastic deformation mechanisms of dislocation motion and grain boundary sliding affect the yield stress of a sample.  Students create conditions that lead to...

  2. Tensile Testing Laboratory: Nanoscale and Macroscale Metal Samples

    24 Nov 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Aisling Coughlan, Kendra A. Erk, David Ray Johnson, Tanya Faltens, Alejandro Strachan, Heidi A Diefes-Dux

    This document is an updated (Fall 2015) sophomore materials science and engineering tensile testing laboratory handout that introduces students to the atomic-level processes that are responsible for plastic deformation. By performing standard tensile tests on a ductile metal in conjunction with...

  3. WALLA Lecture Series: Big Things from a Tiny World

    01 Apr 2010 |

    Think really small–smaller than anything you have ever seen through a microscope. Think atoms and molecules. Now you are at the nanoscale. Nanoscience and nanotechnology are creating new tools for clean energy, lighter and more durable materials, filters for drinking water, detection and...
