Students must be aware about the basic concept of Metallurgy
Selection of materials and failure analysis have an important role in selection of engineering materials and it’s applications. Metallurgy engineers can design and enhance materials properties and select the best material for a particular application, monitor its performance and figure out why a material failed and bring expertise on the properties of materials. To do this, Metallurgy engineers need to understand that how components fail, what are investigations techniques and what are different types of failures. The Selection of Materials and Failure Analysis course is to prepare students for careers in metallurgy engineering where they can apply knowledge of fracture analysis and investigation of failed component.
Course Outcome
After learning the course the students should be able to:
1. provide knowledge about the basic concept of material selection.
2. impart the importance of material selection in metallurgy.
3. understand all procedure for failure investigations.
4. understand types and mechanism of different failure.
5. study material selection for particular mechanical properties & its overall importance in selecting components.
6. How newer materials can be developed and investigated for failure analysis and which can be useful in new technologies and development.

Active Learning
Preparation of power-point slides, which include videos, animations, pictures, graphics for better understanding theory and practical work – The faculty will allocate chapters/ parts of chapters to groups of students so that the entire syllabus to be covered. The power-point slides should be put up on the web-site of the College/ Institute, along with the names of the students of the group, the name of the faculty, Department and College on the first slide. The best three works should be submitted to GTU.
