ADVANCED MATERIALS AND PROCESSES

EMS5AM

2021

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

In this subject, students will understand the fundamental principles of advanced engineering materials and their applications in modern industry. They will be able to use materials selection databases (e.g. MMPDS) and apply underlying principles of materials science together with risk and safety management to make informed decisions in materials selection. Students will consider materials requirements for modern manufacturing enterprises with a particular emphasis on cost, performance, recyclability, sustainability, ease of processing and manufacturing. They will systematically examine the advantages and limitations of advanced materials and the associated processes. They will gain an understanding of methods engineering and standards compliance. This subject content includes a study of processing-structure-property-design relationships, mechanical behaviour (elastic and plastic deformation, and fracture), functional behaviour, degradation and corrosion. The materials covered include metals, polymers, ceramics and composite materials.
