On completion of the course, the student should be able to:
- describe general properties for different materials,
- describe typical materials manufacturing and processing methods,
- describe general design limits for different materials,
- use IT based information sources to search and find material properties,
- execution of a materials selection process for a simple construction case.
Materials from all material classes, characteristic properties such as mechanical, thermal, electrical, optical and chemical properties. Typical applications. Selection of materials for specific constructions. Common manufacturing methods, machining methods, surface finishing methods and joining methods.
Lectures, seminars, assignments, laboratory work.
A material selection project with written report is included, in which the student should submit proposals for materials and appropriate treatments or methods for any design whose requirements profile and tolerances should be matched with the material's characteristics and price.
Laboratory and home assignments (2 credits). Written test (3 credits).
If there are special reasons for doing so, an examiner may make an exception from the method of assessment indicated and allow a student to be assessed by another method. An example of special reasons might be a certificate regarding special pedagogical support from the disability coordinator of the university.
Applies from: Autumn 2020
