Mechanical Behaviour of Engineering Materials and Basic Failure Analysis

Course Description

Introduction to the most important mechanical properties of materials (principally metals). Stress and strain, elastic and plastic behaviours, hardening behaviour, ductility and fracture, creep, fatigue, residual stress, etc. Interactions among different failure-inducing mechanisms (e.g., between corrosion and fatigue) will also be covered. Real case studies of failures in engineering will be used to consolidate the theories introduced in this course.
