Mechanical testing is an important part of understanding how materials behave and how they will operate in service. It is a key piece in the jigsaw of materials design and selection. The knowledge gained from the course will assist engineers and designers when specifying materials.
The classroom course will cover:
- Principles of mechanical testing
The importance of testpiece location
Results - what do they mean?
- Tensile, hardness and toughness testing
Fundamentals of tensile testing
Methods of hardness testing and relationship with other properties
Impact and fracture toughness testing
- Special methods of testing
Examples of corrosion testing
- Evaluation of test results
