Problem Set 2 Group Number: _________ EMA 4714 - Materials Selection and Failure Analysis Monday, January 10, 2005 [Due Friday, January 21, 2005] A basic understanding of the links between thermal properties of materials and the conditions that produce the physiological condition of thermal injury [i.e. scalding or burning] is central to the development of standards to protect consumers from being injured by contacting heated surfaces. Considering what is required for thermal injury to occur [i.e. the process by which the
