Description

Modelling elastic and plastic behaviour. Mechanisms of ductile/brittle overload, fatigue, creep and corrosion. Linear elastic fracture mechanics. Prediction of remaining life due to fatigue, creep, corrosive environments. Fracture safe design and fracture control plans. Correlation between chemical, structural and physical characteristics of metals and plastics necessary for appropriate material selection, design and processing.

This course builds on the structure-property-processing-performance concepts introduced in ENME207 for metals and polymers.  The focus on performance in ENME307 will aid students in complex design tasks in other courses such as ENME311, ENME401 and ENME408.

Learning Outcomes

  • On successful completion of this course students will be able to:
  • Predict elastic and plastic deformation response.
  • Apply brittle fracture safe design methods, including linear elastic fracture mechanics (LEFM) e.g., leak-before-break.
  • Predict temperature effects on steels.
  • Calculate remaining life due to fatigue, corrosion, environmentally assisted cracking and creep.
  • Develop and apply fracture control plans.
  • Apply basic modelling concepts of viscoelastic materials to predict time-dependent properties (creep and relaxation), relaxation time.
  • Perform dynamic mechanical analysis as a method for experimentally determining thermomechanical parameters.
  • Perform analytical modeling and simulation of metal and polymer processing (injection moulding, extrusion).
  • Apply concepts of manufacture of metals and polymers in mechanical designs
    • 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.

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.

Indicative Fees

Domestic fee $986.00

International fee $5,500.00

* All fees are inclusive of NZ GST or any equivalent overseas tax, and do not include any programme level discount or additional course-related expenses.
