Level 2 Industrial Case Study: Stainless Steel
Granta EduPack has always been excellent for teaching a design-driven approach to materials for engineers and designers. In addition, there are some embedded binary phase diagrams and textbook-style support for materials science in the Science Notes. In the new Materials Science and Engineering (MS&E) Database, however, these parts have been made more visible and are supplemented with features to boost introductory MS&E teaching and learning. In this Level 2 industrial case study, we look at how to bridge science and engineering by exploring the novel Phase Diagram Tools and MS&E data-tables to facilitate the understanding of stainless steels and Ni-Cr alloys. Both of which are crucial in many everyday products.
