Measurement of strains and study of failure resulting from applied forces in ductile, brittle, anisotropic, elastomeric, plastic, and composite materials. Tension, compression, bending, impact, and shear failures. Includes a significant engagement in writing as a form of critical inquiry and scholarly expression to satisfy the WID requirement. MAE 3166W may be taken as a corequisite.
Course Learning Objectives (CLOs) (1) Learn the basic tests for mechanical properties: tensile properties, fracture toughness (impact) and hardness (2) Visualize and measure material deformation such as strain by using standard mechanical test machines, strain gauge, and digital recording systems. Measure material hardness with a hardness tester (3) Analyze failure in specimens using different equipment (4) Develop technical report writing skills to promote scholarship and scientific communications
