Non-Destructive Testing (NDT)

The course introduces major non-destructive testing (NDT) methods such as penetrant testing, magnetic particle testing, industrial radiography and Eddy current testing. Discussion of their physical principles and the techniques used follows. Specific application techniques based on the methods are discussed in detail, focusing on parameters affecting the outcome of each NDT method. The applications of eddy current techniques in material inspection such as thin plates and tubes are described. In radiography, the parameters affecting the exposure and the radiograph quality are discussed. The codes and standards and their application to specific NDT methods are described. Acceptance criteria applicable to specific requirements are also discussed. Safety aspects in NDT which include radiation and work safety are emphasized.

The course describes the fundamentals of magnetism, its discovery and its impact on civilisation and technology. The phenomenological and theoretical approach will be employed, beginning with a brief review on elementary magnetostatics and origins of magnetism – magnetic dipole, its response to an applied magnetic field and various interactions giving rise to different types of magnetic ordering in solids. It also covers material’s classifications: Diamagnetism, para-, ferro-, antiferro- and ferrimagnetism, as well as relevant rules/ laws/ theoretical approaches: Hund’s Rule, Curie’s and Curie-Wiess law, Langavin and Stoner theories, etc. Crystalline–electric field effects are treated at a level that is sufficient to provide the basic knowledge in understanding the properties of materials. Other topics include the techniques for magnetic field generation and measurements, magnetic materials and their various applications, such as in electrical and media devices. In general, the students should be able to understand phenomenon related to magnetism, distinguish between the class of magnetic materials and types of magnetism, their wide applications and technological advancements, and be able to perform basic calculations.

Non Crystalline Solids

The course starts with a brief classification of solids and the amorphous state. The transition of liquid to crystal and glass will be explained kinetically which is temperature dependent. Then, the theory for glass formation, structure of liquid and glass using a radial distribution function will be given. Next is the optical properties which include the inter-band absorption edge and the activation energy of the system. Then the amorphous part will be discussed especially that which of carbon and silicon especially in term of their structure and the electro-optical properties. Finally some applications of amorphous thin films material will be discussed.

Ceramics and Amorphous Material

The course starts with a brief introduction on the amorphous and ceramic material, the formation theory and thermodynamic approach. Their preparation techniques will be given consequently. The next topic will be on the microscopic and the macroscopic structure of amorphous and ceramics which include the bond and the imperfections. The physical, mechanical, optical and the electrical properties will be emphasized in the following parts. Then, the chemical durability of amorphous will be attentively highlighted. In general, the course provides some knowledge on the amorphous and ceramics material and their characterization that are useful in the glass and ceramics industry.

This course mainly discusses motion of a body or a system. Beginning with the basic and derived physical quantities and vector as mathematical tool, various types of motion such linear, free-fall, projectile, circular, rotational and simple harmonic motions are described. Other topics such as equilibrium, elasticity, gravitation and fluids mechanics illustrate the application of a body in motion under the influence of a force.
