Materials for mechanical engineering

Individual course

Content:

Common structural materials in mechanical engineering, including steels (structural, QT, tool, stainless), cast irons, non-ferrous metal alloys (aluminium, titanium, magnesium, copper, nickel) and polymer based materials (structural plastics, plastics composite, elastomers, rubbers). Materials selection taking into account different demands. Ashby diagrams.

The objective of the course is to familiarize the student with basic matters concerning properties of metallic and non-metallic structural materials, the area within which the materials are in use, and the principles of materials selection. After the course, the student is able to classify different structural materials such as steels, cast irons, non-ferrous metals, polymer based materials and structural ceramics. The student masters structural materials and their selection so that he/she is able to select the most proper structural material for a product or component.

The course is made up of lectures (32 h) and a materials selection exercise in small group during the periods 1 and 2.
