Explains the definition of common mechanical properties and identifies when a property is important for a given component or application. Carries out design translation to define the function, constraints, objectives, and free variables of an engineering component. Selects the best material for a given application considering all classes of materials including metals, ceramics, polymers, and composites. Students will apply course concepts to their work environment. The work environment must contain some phases of the design process such as stakeholder analysis, conceptual design, risk analysis, detail design, manufacturing, testing, validation, or recycling.
