E3954: Catastrophic Failure: The Materials Preventing and Responsible for Disasters in Splash Fall 2014 (Nov. 08 - 09, 2014)
It's a bad day if your phone screen cracks, but it's something else entirely if your airplane falls out of the sky. Learn about the science and engineering behind materials failures in history through demonstrations and hands-on experiments. We'll explore the enormous demands we place on materials in applications like space exploration, as well as how they work. We'll also show how many materials can change dramatically with changes in temperature and other conditions.
