Aims

To extend MEC1002 Materials Science I in the areas of composition and microstructure in dictating the mechanical properties of materials, control of properties by processing, design taking into account fatigue, fracture, creep and corrosion.

Outline Of Syllabus

- Overview of materials, with yield and failure mechanisms.
- Principles of Linear Elastic Fracture mechanics.
- Fatigue: mechanisms, S-N curves, design for improving fatigue performance.
- Creep of engineering materials.
- Statistical basis of design.
- Use of the above in design of metallic, polymeric and composite structures.
