ECTS Credit: 5.0
Language of Instruction: English
Level of Study: Undergraduate
Course Coordinator: Prof.Dr. CEVDET KAYNAK
Offered Semester: Fall Semesters.

Course Objective

1.Explain the behaviour (stiffness, strength, toughness, fracture, thermal and environmental resistance) of engineering polymers by emphasizing important relationships among their chemical and physical structure, compounding, reinforcing and processing. 2.Recognize different behaviour of polymers and metals by comparing the advantages and deficiencies of each other in design. 3.Perform engineering design using polymers via term-project team work.

Course Content

Review of engineering polymers and their processes. Effects of compounding, reinforcing and processing on the behavior of engineering polymer components. Materials selection and design for strength, stiffness, toughness, resistance to fatigue, creep, hostile environments and wear. Advantages and deficiencies compared with metallic alloys.

Learning Outcomes

Students apply polymer engineering principles and practice a design project.
