Foundations of Materials 2 (MECH5362)
UNIT OF STUDY
This unit aims for students to understand the relationship between properties of materials and their microstructures and to improve mechanical design based on knowledge of mechanics and properties of materials. At the end of this unit students should have the capability to select proper materials for simple engineering design. Course content will include: short-term and long-term mechanical properties; introductory fracture and fatigue mechanics, dislocations; polymers and polymer composite materials; ceramics and glasses; structure-property relationships; selection of materials in mechanical design.
