TECH 2002 - Materials

North Terrace Campus - Semester 2 - 2021

This course introduces the core concepts of material properties, how those properties are related to the intrinsic structure of a material, and how those properties are tested. This will allow students to evaluate the engineering performance of various materials used in engineering applications. The main materials considered will be metals and metal alloys, polymers, and ceramics. An emphasis is placed on the functional roles of different alloys and grades of common engineering materials such as steel, aluminium, and titanium.
