Synopsis: Key concepts in the design, selection and application of materials. Attributes such as stiffness (modulus), strength, toughness, chemical stability and electrical, magnetic, dielectric and thermal properties will be explained in terms of the simple concepts of atomic bonding, crystal defects, polycrystalline microstructure and material flaws. Engineering components can include the universal beam, the aluminium beverage can, video tape, the floppy disc, the automotive spark plug, light-weight structures, offshore structures (concrete and steel).

Assessment: Examination (2 hours): 50% + Mid-semester test: 10% + Assignments and laboratory work: 40%

Contact Hours: 13 lectures and 26 tutorial/laboratory hours
