Deformation and Failure (7.5 ECTS credits)
The course is intended to give an understanding of mechanical properties of engineering materials. The focus is on mechanisms of deformation and fracture of metallic, polymer and composite materials, with an emphasize on metallic materials. Fundamentals of fracture mechanics and fatigue are treated. A case-study on failure analysis is included, where the student will do laboratory as well as theoretical work, aiming at acquiring an in-depth understanding of the relation between microstructure, mechanical properties and the practical application. Also, the student will gain knowledge and experience in laboratory methods used in materials engineering work.
