END-3608 Materials Selection in Product Design - 7.5 ECTS

Type of course

For students at the Master's Degree Programme in Engineering Design. The course can be taken as a single course.

Admission requirements

A relevant undergraduate Bachelor Engineering program with minimum 25 credits mathematics, 5 credits statistics, 7,5 credits physics

Application code: 9371

Course content

The interaction between function, shape (geometry) and material selection in engineering design will be studied (especially in terms of mechanical design). Among other things, the following points are central to the discipline:

- Design Process

- Materials and material structures

- Selection of materials for components exposed to certain stresses

- Development of materials indices and the use of these

- Specific case studies

- Shape Factors

- Use available charts to select the right material for concrete products.

Objectives of the course

Learning outcome:

After completing the course, the students will have knowledge in mechanical engineering design. The students will be able to:

- through a systematic method to choose the most suitable material and form in technical design of various products

- find the material indices of different problems and to use it to find the best materials

- analyze and find the failure mechanisms by using a failure mechanism chart

- understand what the shape efficiency is and use the shape factors to optimize different components or products

Language of instruction and examination

Norwegian (guiding in English) unless there are students present that do not speaking Norwegian.

Teaching methods

Regular lectures, project work and video lectures will be used in the course.
