What participants will learn:

  • Materials selection externalities
  • Cost, abundance and material price
  • Structural materials limitation, properties, and ratio.
  • Will learn about how structured materials are manufactured and processed.

Course syllabus:

  • First lecture: the first lecture focus is on the materials selection introduction to externalities, social comprise, political, economic, military, cultural, environmental, and other effects.
  • Second lecture: the second lecture will cover the connection between materials cost, abundance, and usage—availability influence of factors, including energy density and recyclability.
  • Third lecture: In the third lecture, the lessons will be about properties of materials that impact us in structural applications, ratio analysis using between other examples steel, aluminum, and titanium.
  • Last lecture: In the previous lecture, the lessons will focus on manufacturing and processing factors that affect materials, choices in different applications.
