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 are also examined. CES Edupack material selection software is used throughout the course to enhance the learning experience.
