OBJECTIVES: 1.     To provide understanding of different testing available for engineering material

2.     To provide understanding of different materials evaluations

LEARNING OUTCOMES: Upon successful completion of this course students should have the ability to:

1.     Analyse and differentiate different testing method for engineering material (C4, P2 – LO1, LO2)

2.     Manipulate and making judgement using different measurement and experimental techniques in material evaluation (CTPS5, P4 – LO3)

3.     Investigate and making decision of different material for different application using ethical evaluation (EM2 – LO6)

TRANSFERABLE SKILLS: Students should be able to develop problem solving skills through a process of lectures and tutorials.
TEACHING-LEARNING AND ASSESSMENT STRATEGY: Teaching-learning strategy:

  • The course will be taught through a combination of formal lectures, assignments, group work, blended learning using authentic materials, informal activities and various textbooks.

Assessment strategy:

  • Formative
  • Summative
SYNOPSIS:

 

The course will address the fundamentals of elastic, viscoelastic and plastic deformation of materials; the elementary theory of static and dynamics dislocations; fracture, fatigue, and creep, as well as strengthening mechanisms and behavior of composites.
