Synopsis

The course aims to provide you with a fundamental understanding of the material degradation such as corrosion, fatigue and creep deformation on the aircraft metal alloys. The students will be presented with the working knowledge on the common types of aircraft corrosion, the corrosion prevention and control measures that can be adopted during aircraft design and operations, the metal fatigue crack growth and creep deformation that can occur during operations, as well as methodologies to perform fatigue life prediction and crack growth analysis on aircraft structures.

Level: 2
Credit Units: 5
Presentation Pattern: Every July
E-Learning: BLENDED - Learning is done MAINLY online using interactive study materials in Canvas. Students receive guidance and support from online instructors via discussion forums and emails. This is supplemented with SOME face-to-face sessions. If the course has an exam component, this will be administered on-campus.
