ENRE600
(Perm Req)
Fundamentals of Failure Mechanisms
Credits: 3
Grad Meth: Reg, Aud
Restriction: Permission of ENGR-Mechanical Engineering.
Cross-listed with: ENMA626.
Credit only granted for: ENMA626, ENMA698M, ENMA698R, or ENRE600.
Advanced failure mechanisms in reliability engineering wiil be taught from a basic materials and defects point of view. The methods of predicting the physics of failure of devices, materials, components and systems are reviewed. The main emphasis will be given to basic degradation mechanisms through understanding the physics, chemistry, and mechanics of such mechanisms. Mechanical failures are introduced through understanding fatigue, creep and yielding in materials, devices and components. The principles of cumulative damage and mechanical yielding theory are taught. The concepts of reliability growth, accelerated life testing, environmental testing are introduced. Physical, chemical and thermal related failures are introduced through a basic understanding of degradation mechanisms such as diffusion, electromigration, defects and defect migration. The failure mechanisms in basic material types will be taught. Failure mechanisms observed in real electronic devices and electronic packaging will also be presented. Problems related to manufacturing, and microelectronics will be analyzed. Mechanical failures are emphasized from the point of view of complex fatigue theory.
Sections that begin with a letter are taught via ITV and are not intended for College Park campus students.
ENRE602
Principles of Reliability Analysis
Credits: 3
Grad Meth: Reg, Aud
Cross-listed with: ENNU652.
Principal methods of reliability analysis, including fault tree and reliability block diagrams; Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA); event tree construction and evaluation; reliability data collection and analysis; methods of modeling systems for reliability analysis. Focus on problems related to process industries, fossil-fueled power plant availability, and other systems of concern to engineers.
