Frank Li, Ph.D.
Engineers, architects and contractors can use this course as a necessary training material to ensure a basic understanding of the thermal stress and thermal shock of materials or as a supplement to the course M153 - Fundamentals of Material Science. This course explains how thermal stress and thermal shock combined with pressure can cause major damage to components, and describes the methods in preventing the system from thermal shock. The course materials are based entirely on Module 3 - Thermal Shock in Volume 2 of the U.S. Department of Energy's Fundamentals Handbook - Material Science.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials.
