To provide a grounding in engineering analysis methods for materials students. The module will cover the most important analytical functions and methods used in engineering and will relate these to common materials-related examples. The module will ensure the required grounding in methods and techniques for those who have not previously covered this area, or who are returning after a gap. It will also provide opportunities for extension to more complicated examples for those who have more prior experience.
This module provides an in-depth coverage of quantitative metallographic techniques, and how they can be applied to characterise the microstructures in advanced metallic alloys.
This module aims to increase the depth of knowledge and understanding of material selection for various engineering applications. The module also outlines the range of high performance materials currently employed for various structural applications, mainly within the aerospace industry.
