Level 3 Industrial Case Study: Materials Selection to Avoid Mechanical Failure
For products involving safety, mechanical failure is completely unacceptable and must be avoided at all cost. This is particularly true for applications in aerospace or bioengineering, as well as for many types of sports equipment. Therefore, extensive testing and analyses are usually needed during product development to prevent failures, economic losses and potential loss of lives from occurring in service. This case study focuses on exploring how to select materials to avoid mechanical failure.
