Description et operational verbs
Every object used for structural or functional applications undergoes forces. It must have the dimensions required to withstand these forces without yielding. Its lifetime in service depends on the type of material used, on the nature of the mechanical loading (bending,twisting - monotonic or cyclic - shocks) and on the environmental conditions (temperature,corrosion). Engineers must anticipate the behaviour of a mechanical part under these diverse solicitations to determine its dimensions, estimate its lifetime and chose the appropriate material.
- know the differences in mechanical behaviour of materials in relation with their structure,
