Advanced Engineering Materials (MECH4310)

UNIT OF STUDY

This unit of study aims for students to understand: how to define the relationship between properties and microstructures of advanced engineering materials; how to improve mechanical design with the knowledge of mechanics and properties of materials; how to conduct failure diagnosis of engineering structures. At the end of this unit students should be able to: define structure-property relationships of advanced engineering materials; improve the performance of engineering structures through tailoring materials microstructure and manufacturing processes; conduct failure diagnosis of simplified failure cases of engineering structures. Course content will include: advanced ceramics, superalloys, shape memory alloys and polymers, advanced polymer matrix composites, piezoceramic materials, thin film science and technology, advanced joining methods, processing-structure-property relationship, damage tolerance, structure integrity and reliability, toughening mechanisms.
