Classifying engineering materials and investigating their properties
In this assignment you will: find and present information about the internal structure of materials used in engineering classify materials as either metallic or non-metallic identify the properties of materials and understand how they influence the choice of a material for a particular purpose. investigate the behaviour of materials in service and relate this to their properties.
Your Role
You are nearing the end of the first year of an engineering apprenticeship and have been moved into the design
