Credit points: 15

Subject outline

This subject covers the underlying fundamentals of materials science and engineering with emphasis on structure and properties of materials utilised in the practice of engineering. Content includes a study of atomic and molecular bonding, structure-property relationships, mechanical behaviour (elastic and plastic deformation, and fracture), phase diagrams and manufacturing processes and applications. The materials covered include metals, polymers, ceramics, and composite materials.

Intended Learning Outcomes

01. Describe atomic structure of materials and how it influences the macroscopic properties of materials.
02. Compare the fundamental differences and general properties of key engineering materials: metals, ceramics, polymers and composites.
03. Interpret the concepts of stress and strain and the mechanics of the various failure mechanisms in structures.
04. Interpret phase diagrams and the correlation between microstructure and mechanical properties of materials.
05. Differentiate fabrication techniques and processing procedures of engineering materials to achieve the required properties.
06. Understand the technical aspects of other alternatives of disposing of the main classes of materials such as incineration, degradation or recycling.
