High-Temperature Mechanical Design
This course is part of the UCLA Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science (HSSEAS) Master of Science in Engineering Online (MSOL) program. It is available only to students pre-approved by HSSEAS. See below for more information.
About this course:MAE 296B High-Temperature Mechanical Design (Instructor: Prof. Ghoniem, N.) Lecture, four hours; outside study, eight hours. Requisite: course 156A or equivalent. Review of elasticity and continuum thermodynamics, multiaxial plasticity, flow rules, cyclic plasticity, viscoplasticity, creep, creep damage in cyclic loading. Damage mechanics: thermodynamics, ductile, creep, fatigue, and fatigue-creep interaction damage. Fracture mechanics: elastic and elastoplastic analysis, J-integral, brittle fracture, ductile fracture, fatigue and creep crack propagation. Applications in design of hightemperature components such as turbine blades, pressure vessels, heat exchangers, connecting rods. Design project involving CAD and FEM modeling. Letter grading.
