EG1012: FUNDAMENTALS OF ENGINEERING MATERIALS (2019-2020)

Last modified: 28 Aug 2019 09:08


Course Overview

Engineering design depends on materials being shaped, finished and joined together. Design requirements define the performance required of the materials. What do engineers need to know about materials to choose and use them successfully? They need a perspective of the world of materials. They need understanding of material properties. They need methods and tools to select the right material for the job. This course will help you develop knowledge and skills required for the successful selection and use of engineering materials.

Course Description

The course starts with a broad introduction to materials and processing and their importance to engineering design.  A number of important materials properties are then defined and their relevance to engineering is placed in context.  Methods for measuring these properties are given, along with the origin of these properties.  The relationships between properties and microstructure, and properties and processing are also examined.  CES Edupack material selection software is used throughout the course to enhance the learning experience.
