Characterization Of Engineering Materials - Essential Knowledge To Solve Engineering Issue
Date: 27-28 February 2017
Venue: Kompleks Eureka, USM, Penang
Engineering materials are the core of any engineering products. The performances of the products are determined by the behaviour and characteristics of the designed materials according to their required specifications. Therefore, it is extremely important to understand the characteristics of the materials. This can be done by performing an appropriate characterization or testing on the materials. The information that is of interest is electrical, mechanical, thermal, optical, and chemical properties. To acquire the information, knowledge of characterization tools, limitation of the tools, and application of the tools is essential. By having this knowledge, it may help engineers and researchers to select a suitable tool for a specific purpose. The characterization tools that will be covered are suitable for materials in bulk and thin film form.
