Description

This module links engineering materials analysis and testing with manufacturing processes.  Rather than approach engineering materials as a standalone topic, it is linked to relevant aspects of manufacturing processes.

Learning Outcomes

On completion of this module the learner will/should be able to;

1.

Employ materials tests to determine material properties, find component flaws and monitor manufacturing processes.

2.

Predict alloy microconstituent fractions, microstructures and phases based on composition and heat treatment.

3.

Select heat treatment processes appropriate to manufacturing processes like sheet metal forming, welding assemblies and toolmaking.

4.

Analyse how additive manufacturing processes affect component material properties and precision.

5.

Describe how manufacturing processes can impact component material properties.

6.

Select adhesives for design applications taking into consideration the target material properties.

Teaching and Learning Strategies

Fulltime
The theoretical and background material will be presented through a series of lectures. Application of the theory will be
demonstrated in class and understanding demonstrated through ongoing laboratory sessions and assignments.

Online
This module will be delivered using blended learning techniques. The theoretical and background material will be presented
through a series of online lectures. Application of the theory will be demonstrated through an end of semester laboratory session
and ongoing assignments.

Module Assessment Strategies

Theory and some applied elements will be assessed in a final exam. Practical elements will be assessed based on laboratory
and written reports.

Repeat Assessments

Repeat assessment will involve a final exam and resubmission of reports or practicals as determined by the lecturer.

Indicative Syllabus

  1. Materials tests (torsion, hardenability, impact, hardness)
  2. Non-destructive testing
  3. Different classifications of phase diagrams
  4. Using the lever rule to find, mass, volume and micro-constituent fractions.
  5. Iron-carbon system development of microstructures
  6. Phase transformations & isothermal diagrams
  7. Heat treatment of steels & hardenability
  8. Mechanical properties of welded joints including flaws (distortion, segregation, cracking, HAZ)
  9. Plastic deformation and work hardening of sheet metals
  10. Mechanical properties of additive manufactured metal parts
