application design

of components material protection (from corrosion, damage, etc.)

1. Physical properties 2. Mechanical properties 3. Chemical properties


light wave length


heat the heat required to raise the temperature of one gram of a substance by one degree centigrade (J/kg K)


mass per unit volume expressed in such units as kg/cm 3 conductivity rate at which heat flows through a given material (W/m K)



point a temperature at which a solid begins to liquify conductivity a measure of how strongly a material opposes the flow of electric current (m)



of thermal expansion degree of expansion divided by the change in temperature (m/C)


strength measures the force required to pull something such as rope,wire or a structural beam to the point where it breaks a measure of how much strain a material can take before rupturing



the property of a material that can be worked or hammered or shaped without breaking breaking or shattering of a material when subjected to stress (when force is applied to it)



the property of a material that returns to its original shape after stress (e.g. external forces) that made it deform or distort is removed - the deformation of a material undergoing non-reversible changes of shape in response to applied forces



the ability of a material to absorb energy and plastically deform without fracturing the property of being rigid and resistant to pressure; not easily scratched



the property of a material that can be shaped by hammering, pressing, rolling


resistance - a material's ability to resist deterioration caused by exposure to an environment

Specific resistance

Forging - a manufacturing process where metal is shaped by plastic deformation under great pressure into high strength parts. Casting pouring or injecting molten metal into a mold containing a cavity with the desired shape
