Modelling elastic and plastic behaviour. Mechanisms of ductile/brittle overload, fatigue, creep and corrosion. Linear elastic fracture mechanics. Prediction of remaining life due to fatigue, creep, corrosive environments. Fracture safe design and fracture control plans. Correlation between chemical, structural and physical characteristics of metals and plastics necessary for appropriate material selection, design and processing.

This course builds on the structure-property-processing-performance concepts introduced in ENME207 for metals and polymers. The focus on performance in ENME307 will aid students in complex design tasks in other courses such as ENME311, ENME401 and ENME408.
