Description

Classes of materials and their properties in terms of strength, chemical stability, corrosion, elasticity, hardness, and applications. Stress-strain behaviour, Young's modulus, elastic deformation and failure modes.

Learning Outcomes

  • Learning Outcomes (General)
  • Students will be able to understand the concepts of categorizing materials and processes in the form of families, classes and sub-classes
  • Students will gain an understanding of the different classes of materials and their typical attributes and properties
  • Students will be familiar the material class of polymers and gain a working understanding of their properties and processing requirements
  • Students will develop a working understanding of material properties including mechanical, thermal, chemical and aesthetic properties and how to test them
  • Students will be able to match materials and design and how to understand and identify the relevant information for the material and process
  • Students will be able to recognize and understand the environmental aspects of a material choice including life cycle assessments, end of life scenarios and recyclability

Assessment

Materials library card assessment: 15% in total:
• Students will be asked to select a material of their choice, research some of its key properties
       and applications and present their findings in the form of a postcard and through a short
       report. Due: End of week 12

Laboratory assessments: 30% in total:
• Report for Lab 1, 4 and 6 : 5 % each for Lab 1 &4, 8 % for Lab 6, due 1 week after lab session
• Quizzes for Labs 3 and 5: 4 % each; at the end of each lab session
• Lab hand in for lab 2: 4 %; at the end of the lab session

Notes

Goal of the Course
The goal of this course is to provide students with a design-led introduction to material science to be able to isolate the requirements that materials must meet to perform in a design context. Students should be able to identify important material properties, understand the fundamental science behind those properties and use their knowledge to select a material suitable for a specific design.

Indicative Fees

Domestic fee $986.00

International fee $5,500.00

* Fees include New Zealand GST and do not include any programme level discount or additional course related expenses.
