This course will involve the student in an investigation of the range of materials commonly used in civil engineering. The characterisation of materials and the need for material parameters for design will be considered. The student will test a range of materials in the laboratory to establish material properties. Presentation and interpretation of test results will also form an important part of the course.
This course contains a mandatory residential school for external students and mandatory on-campus laboratories or practical classes for on-campus students.
