Mechanical Behaviour of Materials
The subject aims at providing students with knowledge on:
- mechanical properties of major groups of materials in engineering;
- phenomenological aspects of plasticity;
- mechanical tests;
- concepts and applications of fracture mechanics, fatigue and creep;
- criteria for creep and fatigue design;
- concepts of stress corrosion.

Students are requested to have completed Materials Science and Solid Mechanics I.
- Jorge Rodrigues e Paulo Martins, Tecnologia Mecânica - vol.1, ed. Escolar Editora, 2005.
- Martins Ferreira, Comportamento mecânico de materiais, ed. FCTUC, 1999.
- Ashby, Michael F., Jones, David R.H., “Engineering Materials 1: An introduction to their properties and applications”, 2nd Edition, Butterworth Heinemann, 1996.
In lectures the material is presented and discussion is promoted. There is some lab work to promote the contact of the student with a variety of experimental equipment.
- 1st Test;
- 2nd Test;
- Case study with report, presentation and discussion.
Final grade = 1st Test x 0.35 + 2nd Test x 0.35 + Case study x 0.30
with 2nd Test >= 8.0 values.
To obtain frequency, the student must have at least 9.5 values in the Case study.
The student will be approved if the Final grade is greater than 9.5 values while have frequency to the discipline.
All students with frequency to the discipline have access to the final exam.
