1. a) Classify materials as a metal, ceramic, polymer or composite based on a
knowledge of the atomic bonding and structure.
b) Further classify polmers as either thermosets, thermoplastics or elastomers
based on a knowledge of their molecular structure
c) Further classify ceramics as engineering (technical) ceramics, traditional
ceramics or ceramic glasses based on a knowledge of their atomic structure.
2. Given one or more equations describing the performance of a simple component
(e.g. a tie-rod, column or beam) determine the material properties that govern the
performance of the components.
3. Predict the elastic response of a simple component given a knowledge of the
geometry and mode o...
