This subject develops a knowledge of the variety, properties and characteristics of engineering materials. Equilibrium phase diagrams and kinetic TTT diagrams for predicting microstructure in materials. Properties of alloys (steels, aluminium, magnesium, titanium, and other non-ferrous metals). Ceramic materials: ceramics and glasses; forming of ceramics; structure and defects in ceramics. Characterisation, structure and properties of polymers; polymer processing. Rubber elasticity. Fibre and metal reinforced advanced composite materials. Strengthening and toughening mechanisms for materials. Fracture mechanics. Characterisation methods (mechanical and microstructural). Biomaterials and nano-materials.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
The learning objectives are:
- To understand the principles of engineering and science in applications of materials and design.
- To learn to find information in literature and other available sources.
- To learn to use information systems (computer, internet, and other available sources) in engineering practice.
- To design engineering structures using material properties and functions
Assignments (20%); Project & Laboratories (30%); Final Exam (50%)
The ANU uses Turnitin to enhance student citation and referencing techniques, and to assess assignment submissions as a component of the University's approach to managing Academic Integrity. While the use of Turnitin is not mandatory, the ANU highly recommends Turnitin is used by both teaching staff and students. For additional information regarding Turnitin please visit the ANU Online website.
