This course provides an understanding of the interrelationship between material properties at the atomic, microscopic and macroscopic scale which underpin the mechanical properties of metals and their alloys, polymers, ceramics and composites, and reviews the wide range of test methodologies that have been developed to accurately measure the properties of each group of materials.
The course is aimed at people who wish to gain an understanding of the key role that testing plays in ensuring that the materials selected are ‘fit for purpose’ in a range of applications. Typical candidates include both technical personnel and engineers.
To provide a good understanding of material properties, and the test methodologies and standards that have been developed to ensure that materials can be safely deployed in a wide range of in-service scenarios.
A wide knowledge of the basis of the mechanical properties of both metallic and non-metallic materials. Course delegates will be able evaluate the performance of materials under a range of both static and dynamic loading conditions, and relate the results obtained to in-service requirements.
2 hour written exam.
3 days plus assessment.
