Module 4: Modulus of Elasticity - Introduction

In this week, we will first provide an overview on the course's content, targeted audiences, the instructor's professional background, and tips to succeed in this course. Then we will cover critical material properties in design, such as strength, modulus of elasticity, and the coefficient of thermal expansion. A case study examining material selection in a Zimmer orthopedic hip implant will demonstrate the real life design applications of these material properties. At the end of the week you will have the opportunity to check your own knowledge of these fundamental material properties by taking Quiz 1 "Material Properties in Design."
