- Appreciate why compromise between high values of strength and toughness is necessary.
- Understand the metal structural differences that give rise to continuous and discontinuous yielding.
- Be familiar with parameters such as Young’s modulus (E), yield strength, 0.2 and 1.0 % proof strength, UTS, ductility measures, engineering stress-strain, true stress - strain and work hardening index ‘n’.
- Distinguish between ductile, brittle and intergranular failure.
- Be able to interpret the standards and test metrics displayed on mill certificates.
