EMA 4714 Section 2983 Materials Selection and Failure Analysis Spring Semester 2012 Objectives If a single word could be used to describe what it is that engineers do, it would be "design". Materials engineers, regardless of their individual discipline, will be required to select a candidate material from a large list of options with which to fabricate components to be used either alone, or as part of an assembly. The design process necessarily will involve an association of intended performance [behavior] with capacity to perform [properties] - this you have been doing for some time. You will also be required to integrate functionality into your analysis - to understand what it is that the component is supposed to do with respect to the total service environment. This area would include, among other things: distribution of mechanical forces during operation, duration and kinetics of these mechanical forces; heat, mass, fluid and electrical transport; and environmental stability of the materials selected. Beyond that, to complicate matters, there will
