This unit will cover how materials fail and how we can select materials to avoid failure through an understanding of component geometry, loading conditions and the material properties. The unit will address important mechanical failure types including yielding, creep, wear, corrosion, fatigue and fracture, as well as the important equations that describe their behaviour and the way micro-structures can be manipulated to improve performance in these instances.
Examination 50%, assignment 1 (Portfolio) 30%, assignment 2 (literature research) 20%. To be eligible to obtain a pass in this unit, students must achieve an overall mark of at least 40% in the examination.
