View Resource Aerospace Materials Failure Modes Instructor Notes

This Microsoft Word document from the Aerospace Manufacturing Education Project is intended to accompany a PowerPoint presentation on aerospace materials failure modes. That PowerPoint document may be found here along with other accompanying materials. In the presentation and accompanying notes, the materials used in constructing aircraft are examined, including metals, ceramics,...

View Resource Aerospace Materials Failure Modes Presentation

This PowerPoint document from the Aerospace Manufacturing Education Project provides an overview of aerospace materials failure modes. The presentation will allow students to examine the question: "How can aircraft structural materials fail?" The materials used in constructing aircraft are examined, including metals, ceramics, plastics/elastomers and composites.

View Resource Plastic Stretch

This learning activity will be helpful for students learning about plastic deformation. Specifically, the exercise looks at plastic deformation in polyethylene, which is found in plastic sheets, bags and other common items. Students will participate in plastic deformation of a polymer, observe "necking" in the material and its effect on strength and relate the behavior of the sample to...

View Resource Practical Use of Nanomaterials in Plastics

This resource, created by Joseph J. Schwab for the National Center for Rapid Technologies (Rapid Tech), discusses the use of nanotechnology in the manufacturing of plastics. The author first begins by providing a technical definition of what nanotechnology is. He breaks the technology into three sections: nanostructured materials, nanotools and nanodevices. Schwab presents methods, and also...

View Resource Introduction to Plastics

Teachers' Domain presents this video as part of a series on advanced technological education. This video illustrates the basics of the plastics industry. The clip teaches the physical properties of plastics, including examples of common plastics. It also includes an animation depicting how monomers join to form polymers, which plastics are made up of. The video goes on to show how polymers and...
