MATERIALS IN ENGINEERING AND SCIENCE
Credit points: 15
This subject investigates the micro and macroscopic properties and behaviour of modern materials. The focus is on explaining how the atomic structure influences the properties of materials used in construction and design applications. Content includes a study of atomic and molecular bonding, structure-property relationships, degradation and corrosion, manufacturing processes and applications. The materials covered include inorganic solids (metals), natural and synthetic polymers, and composite materials (concrete). At the completion of the subject students will be able to identify the strength and weaknesses of various types of materials for particular applications, and relate these properties to the atomic-level character of the material.
