Aims

For students already familiar with applications and processes for engineering materials, this module considers the factors dictating the mechanical properties of materials (metallic, ceramic and polymeric), the control of properties by processing, and design taking into account fatigue, fracture, creep and degradation (corrosion).

Outline Of Syllabus

Overview of materials and their failure mechanisms, key materials selection properties for mechanical design, relationship between material choice and processing route.
Principles of Linear Elastic Fracture Mechanics.
Fatigue – mechanisms, S-N curves, design for improving fatigue performance.
Creep of engineering materials
Corrosion and its avoidance.
Awareness of above issues in design with metallic, polymeric and composite components.
