Overview of Project


Project A is Tensile Testing of Engineering Materials. Different materials have different microstructures which determines their mechanical properties. Researchers and Engineers explores and map those properties so that materials can be selected and used for the right application.

The objectives of Project A :
•To understand different mechanical properties if materials
•To observe how the three types of materials behave in their mechanical properties under the tensile and bend test
•To understand the major factors that determines those mechanical properties.

Project B is Scanning Electron Microscope. The Electron Microscope were developed due to the limitations of the Light Microscope. It uses a beam of highly energetic electrons to examine objects on a very fine scale. Then, the beam will swept the sample across it’s surface. The signals generated by the interaction of the electron beam with the sample is collected by a variety of detectors which provides a topography, morphology and compositions of the sample.

The objective of Project B:
•To get us familiar with the Scanning Electron Microscope and the most common detectors used to collect images and chemical data of materials.
•To have the basic understanding and assimilation of the basic of Scanning Electron Microscopy and Instrumentation
•To have the basic understanding and assimilation of the basic of Signal Detection theory and instrumentation for Secondary Electrons, Backscattered Electrons and Energy Dispersive X-ray detectors.

Project C is Composite Material Processing. Composite material is a combination between two or more materials. It has the desirable properties that cannot be obtained by either of the constituent materials alone.

The objective of Project C:
•To understand what is composite materials and how to fabricate them
•To appreciate the application of composite materials in daily life
•To appreciate the mechanical properties of composites.
