For the purposes of considering request for Reasonable Adjustments under the Disability Standards for Education (Cwth 2005), and Students Experiencing Academic Disadvantage Policy, academic requirements for this subject are articulated in the Subject Description, Subject Objectives, Generic Skills and Assessment Requirements of this entry.
This subject consists of two distinct and fundamentally related topics -
• An introduction to the fundamentals of materials science will be given on atomic structure and bonding, crystal structures and defects, elastic and plastic deformation, dislocations and strengthening and failured (fast fracture, fatigue and creep).
Particular emphasis will be placed on the fundamental mechanisms by which materials fail under loading.
Mechanics: the definition of principal stresses, plane stress, plane strain, two-dimensional stress and strain analysis, torsion, pure bending, transverse loading, Mohr’s circle, failure criteria, inelastic behaviour, residual stress.
Materials: atomic structure and bonding, crystal structures and defects, elastic and plastic deformation, dislocations and strengthening and failure (fast fracture, fatigue and creep).
INTENDED LEARNING OUTCOMES (ILO)
Having completed this subject the student is expected to be able to -
• Perform basic stress and strain analysis;
• One three-hour end of semester written examination (70%). Associated with Intended Learning Outcomes (ILOs) 1 to 4.
