Summary

 

Structure, Properties and Applications of Polymers - ME3-HSPAP

Aims

  • To develop an understanding of the mechanical properties, processing characteristics and failure modes of the principal classes of polymers, in terms of their structure
  • To define and familiarise some of the basic vocabulary and concepts needed to understand the technical literature of polymers and to communicate with specialists in the field
  • To develop familiarity with the processing technologies available for plastics, and the ways in which they influence the design and properties of plastic components
  • To develop a critical appreciation of the methods used to measure mechanical property data for plastics, to present such data to designers, and to use such data for material selection.

Tribology - ME3-HTRB

Aims

The overall aim of the Tribology Course is to provide students with a general and useful introduction to the main concepts and principles of Tribology (friction, lubrication and wear), with particular emphasis on lubricated systems. It is recognised that the field of Tribology is very large and multidisciplinary and that it is thus impossible to cover all aspects of the subject adequately. Instead the Tribology Course focuses on those areas of Tribology particularly relevant to the design and performance of lubricated machine components. The Course covers the underlying principles and provides an extensive set of handout notes and references aimed at assisting students comprehend and address tribological problems that they may meeting in their future engineering careers, even those outside the areas directly covered by the Course.
