Exercises: Quick Materials Selection Projects

These prompts were designed to be used during short (approximately 20 minutes) group activities in class. Each prompt includes a product description and a shortlist of constraints. The purpose of this resource is to encourage students to participate in collaborative learning, combining fundamental concepts of material properties and the CES EduPack software’s ability to compare properties for materials selection. There are no specific right or wrong answers to these projects - the goal is for students to use their new and existing materials knowledge to make materials selection decisions as a group and rationalize those choices using facts, not necessarily to find the “best” choice.
