Thermodynamics and Kinetics of Materials: Course Description

This free graduate-level course offers a thorough examination of the relation of thermodynamics and kinetics to materials and their processes. It should be noted that the OpenCourseWare content includes only the kinetics component of the course, as the thermodynamics portion has not yet been added to the site. Many kinetics topics are discussed, including diffusion, solidification and sintering. Students will study theoretical problems like the 'Moving Boundary' problem. Taught at MIT by Professors Samuel Allen and Thomas Eager, 'Thermodynamics and Kinetics of Materials' is a graduate-level OpenCourseWare.

Included with this course are downloadable lecture notes and summaries, as well as various supplemental study materials, including sample examinations. If you're interested in this free course, visit the material thermodynamics and kinetics course page.
