Description:

This DataVis project is part of a series of 10 projects designed for an Introduction to Materials Science and Engineering course. Students should download the project document below and then access the project in DataVis to complete the project.

This project focuses on the Electrical and Magnetic Properties of all Material Classifications.

The expected student outcomes for this project are as follows:

1. Students will explore Electrical Conductivity values across all Material Classifications and will be able to explain the wide range of values fundamentally. Students will understand the relationship between Electrical Conductivity and Electrical Resistivity.

2. Students will explore the Dielectric Constant for all Material Classifications, be able to understand the differences between Material Classifications, inclusive of Metals, and be able to select a material for a capacitor, including cost.

3. Students will understand the Loss Tangent for all Material Classifications and understand why some materials have a value of not applicable. Students will be able to compare Loss Tangent across Material Classifications.

4. Students will be able to understand the differences among Coercive Field across Material Classifications. Students will be able to select a material for maximum Coercive Field and justify their response.

5. Students will be able to understand the differences among Maximum Relative Permeability across Material Classifications. Students will be able to select a material for Maximum Relative Permeability and justify their response.

6. Students will be able to describe the differences in maximum Saturation Coefficient among Material Classifications. Students will be able to select a material for the maximum Magnetic Saturation and justify their choice and explain differences across Material Classifications.
