27-557 Selection and Performance of Materials

Department:Materials Science and Eng.
Related URLs:

This course involves the application of materials and process selection methodologies used in product design. These methodologies are based upon the integration of function, shape, material, and process and are used to select materials and processes for a variety of product applications (electronic, magnetic, mechanical, optical, thermal, etc.) from amongst the entire spectrum of engineering materials (elastomers, ceramics, glasses, polymers, metals, and composites). Other factors in the selection process include engineering economics, codes and standards, environmental and safety regulations, professional ethics, and life cycle analysis. Common causes of failure and methods of prevention are evaluated as one stepping-stone to a final project: the selection of a material or process for a new product or for an improved existing product. There is extensive use of the Ashby Materials Selection Software throughout the course.
