Activity 1
Choose a product by looking around you at home, workplace, in your car, or anywhere else.
Typical examples include a part or parts of your home’s vacuum cleaner, your bicycle’s sprocket
and chain mechanism, your car’s wheel rim, etc. It is desirable to choose a product where a
change of material would result in an improvement such as preventing material failure,
improving efficiency, improving safety, etc. Then identify and perform an analysis of the
suitability of the material(s) used in the product. In this activity you may find useful Appendix B
(Properties of Selected Materials) and Appendix C (Costs and relative Costs for Selected
Engineering Materials) of reference 2 which can be found in the reserve collection of ECU

Activity 2
Try to find and propose substitute materials which could lead to improvement(s), if any. You
are required to provide adequate reasons and justification for your selection of substitute
materials and explain the sort of improvement expected if the change of material is made. In
some instances a possible outcome could be “no change in the material(s) is recommended,”
however, you should be able to properly justify this. In this activity you need to study assigned
readings of Lecture 6 on the selection of materials – particularly substitute materials selection
examples – and also Ashby’s materials selection charts published in reference 4. The latter
reference can also be found in the reserve collection of ECU library. Take into consideration
factors such as
? performance,
? cost or relative cost,
? safety,
? manufacturing method, and
? environmental issues.

Activity 3
This is an optional activity. If a reasonable change of material is suggested then contact the
manufacturer and talk to them about your research and your suggestion on change of material;
and the sort of improvements that may be achieved. You need to follow this up and it is often
hard to get in touch with industries, however, it worth trying, and this may result in your
connection to the industry.
