Dissemination of IT for the Promotion of Materials Science (DoITPoMS)



On completion of this TLP you should:

  • Understand the concept of anisotropy, and appreciate that the response (e.g. displacement) need not be parallel to the stimulus (e.g. force)
  • Understand the nature of anisotropic behaviour in a range of properties, including electrical and thermal conductivity, diffusion, dielectric permittivity and refractive index, and be aware of a range of everyday examples
  • Be familiar with the use of representation surfaces
