Summary

 

Polymers and Composites - MATE97004

Aims

The overall aim of this course is to introduce students to the main methods and fundamental principles used for the processing of polymers and composite materials and to develop an understanding of the factors that influence their mechanical properties.

Polymers and Composites - MATE96005

Aims

The overall aim of this course is to introduce students to the main methods and fundamental principles used for the processing of polymers and composite materials and to develop an understanding of the factors that influence their mechanical properties.

Role

Lecturer

Advanced Structural Ceramics - MATE97021

Aims

  • To review microstructural aspects of the behaviour of major ceramic families such as alumina, silicon carbide, silicon nitride, zirconia and glass and contrast microstructural control aimed at increases strength with microstructural approaches aiming to improve toughness to offer a reference frame in which to understand current research and development
  • To clarify the need for composites and to contrast the mechanical response of ceramic composites with that of monoliths
  • To re-examine the general theoretical concepts underpinning the structural performance of materials developed in MSE.203 Mechanical behaviour with an aim to strengthen the students ability to apply the general principles to ceramics
  • To explore the transitions in mechanical behaviour and relate these to the different micro-mechanism of deformation that act in ceramics so that students can judge how microstructure, time, scale and deformation rate can alter the response
  • To explain the concepts underpinning the state-of-the-art methodologies, which can be used to design monolithic ceramic components with confidence
  • To train students in fractography of ceramics
  • To discuss high temperature ceramics, the various forms in which these materials are used such as coatings, fibres and composites and how they are made.
  • To examine the fundamental quantitative factors that control stability, mechanical performance and damage accumulation under service conditions.
