Building upon previous knowledge of materials and manufacturing processes, this course focuses on the selection, design and manufacture of advanced materials and fiber-reinforced plastic (FRP) composites. Non-destructive test (NDT) techniques used in production, quality assurance and predictive maintenance are investigated. Failure analysis principles and techniques are applied to the analysis of materials failure case studies. A laboratory component allows for "hands-on" skills development.
This course isn't currently offered through IZUNA Part-time Studies. Please check back next term or subscribe to receive email updates.
Upon successful completion, the student will be able to:
Explain basic principles and provide examples of applications for "advanced" materials such as advanced composites or high temperature, cryogenic, "smart" and "nano" materials.
Utilize a wide spectrum of materials property data and lifecycle analysis in choosing suitable engineering materials.
Demonstrate the use of creep and wear data in design calculations for polymeric materials.
Perform basic fabrication processes related to FRP composites.
Explain the principles of non-destructive testing techniques as applied to production, quality assurance and predictive maintenance programs.
Apply principles and techniques of materials failure analysis to case studies of failed metallic and non-metallic components.
Use failure case studies to identify common errors or pitfalls in materials selection and processing.
Effective as of Fall 2007
