ME221 - Structural Materials
Amol Anant Gokhale
Not difficult at all. Lot of theory content. Few numerical type concepts
Time Commitment Required
Low but regular HWs are given
Grading Policy and Statistics
Grading was slightly below average. Not many AAs were given. Around 4-5 out of 60
Solid state from JEE will help in the initial part of the course
10% HWs = 0.5% * 20
10% each quizzes, 2 quizzes were taken
50% endsem (as offline endsem was expected, might change for offline)
Topics Covered in the Course
Internal structure of materials
Effects of different working - cold working, forging, etc
Faults in structure
Live classes during class hours which were recorded. I felt the teaching was quite good. The prof has a slow-decent pace (perfect in 2x). Concepts were explained very cleary. Course contents were interesting even though theoretical.
Assignments are given after every lecture which are due in 1 week. Very small assignments with 4-5 ques which have answers within the slides. Very helpful to stay updated with the rest of the class. Help a lot for your preparation. Have 0.5% weightage each.
Feedback on Exams
Exams were moderate. Theory and numericals have equal weight. Correction was quite strict.
Introductory course for composites and basic metallurgy.
