Description

Fundamental relationships between structure, processing, physical properties and performance for metallic, ceramic, polymeric, composite and electronic materials.

This introductory course is designed for mechanical engineering students. The fundamental relationships between structure, processing and physical properties will be examined for metallic, ceramic, polymeric, and composite materials.

Learning Outcomes

  • At the conclusion of the course, the successful student:
    1) will be able to identify the major properties of the different classes of materials (metals, ceramics, glasses, polymers, and electronic materials);
    2) will be able to recognize the interdependence of the structure, properties, processing, and performance of materials, and will be able to describe the important parameters that govern the relationships between these four categories;
    3) will be able to integrate fundamental materials science with laboratory synthesis and processing, as well as analysis of experimental data.

    The lecture topics include:
  • atomic, crystalline and microscopic structure of metallic, ceramic, polymeric and composite materials.
  • crystalline defects and diffusion
  • mechanical properties and strengthening mechanisms
  • metal forming
  • fracture mechanisms and failure analysis
  • thermodynamics and kinetics of phase transformations
  • solidification processing of metal and plastics
  • corrosion
  • materials selection

    The embedded laboratories complement the lectures with practical experience in observing and
    measuring the properties and behaviour of engineering materials and comparing to reference data
    and theoretical predictions.
    • University Graduate Attributes

      This course will provide students with an opportunity to develop the Graduate Attributes specified below:

      Critically competent in a core academic discipline of their award

      Students know and can critically evaluate and, where applicable, apply this knowledge to topics/issues within their majoring subject.

Pre-requisites

Subject to the approval of the Dean of Engineering and Forestry

Timetable 2020

Notes

Other Important Information

You should familiarize yourself with the policies relating to all Mech Eng courses at
https://www.canterbury.ac.nz/engineering/schools/mechanical/student-advice-and-support/,
especially those on special consideration, requests to sit quizzes or turn in assessment on
alternate dates, academic integrity, and award of grades.

Some Tips For Your Success in ENME207

1. Read your uclive emails to stay on top of the course messages from LEARN.
2. Keep up with the required reading from the text book.
3. Attend all the lectures and participate.
4. Get lecture slides from LEARN before lecture.
5. Take notes during lectures – writing notes on them helps you learn.
6. Attend your tutorial and attempt the tutorial questions.
7. Complete the weekly homework on time.
8. Study for the quizzes after you do the reading and homework.
9. Look at quiz solutions and your answers as soon as they are available after a quiz.
10. Ask questions if you’re not sure how to obtain a quiz or homework answer.
11. Attend all laboratories at your designated time.
12. Proofread your laboratory worksheets to ensure you follow the instructions and to ensure
that they make sense.

Additional Course Outline Information

Academic integrity

Harassment
* Harassment of any sort will not be tolerated.  Each UC student is here to learn and to experience a friendly and supportive community.
* It is every student's right to expect: respect and courtesy from staff and other students, including freedom from harassment of any sort; fair treatment; the ability to speak out about any issues that concern them, without fear of consequences for their safety and well-being.
* Furthermore, each student has the responsibility to: respect the rights and property of others; attend to their own health and safety, and that of others; and behave in a manner towards each other that does not reflect badly on the student body or the University.
* If you, or someone you know, has experienced harassment, please talk to your lecturers, directors of study, or head of department.


Dishonest Practice
* Plagiarism, collusion, copying, and ghost writing are unacceptable and dishonest practices.
* Plagiarism is the presentation of any material (test, data, figures or drawings, on any medium including computer files) from any other source without clear and adequate acknowledgment of the source.
* Collusion is the presentation of work performed in conjunction with another person or persons, but submitted as if it has been completed only by the named author(s).
* Copying is the use of material (in any medium, including computer files) produced by another person(s) with or without their knowledge and approval.
* Ghost writing is the use of another person(s) (with or without payment) to prepare all or part of an item submitted for assessment.

Do not engage in dishonest practices. The Department reserves the right to refer dishonest practices to the University Proctor and where appropriate to not mark the work.
The University regulations on academic integrity and dishonest practice can be found here.
