Oregon State University
Fall Term 2014
Dr. W. H. Warnes



A: Icarus relied on inappropriate materials for his design with unpleasant consequences.
B: Silicon carbide fibers in a titanium matrix composite. [Modified from an image by James Baughman, NASA Langley, in Advanced Materials and Processes, February 1997]
C: The background is a materials selection chart as developed by M. F. Ashby and will be used in this course for optimization of materials selection.
D: Modern vacuum systems incorporate a wide range of materials chosen for specific design concerns.
E: The materials that make up a common water spigot can also profit from optimization in the selection process.
