Description: This lecture helps to create an understanding of how material properties, costs of materials and of their fabrication, required product life, and product liability interact in different ways depending on the product. Some knowledge of fabricating processes and the significance of such factors as fatigue, fracture toughness and environmental performance on material selection is assumed.
Keywords: design • product • product integrity • in-service failure • production volume • life cycle • pressure cabin • high pressure gas cylinders • beverage cans
