5.2.2 Lecture: Material Selection

Course subject(s) Module 5. Selection of Materials and Structures

In this video Calvin explains how to select the material for your design by looking at the efficiencies with respect to the design requirements of each material. You will soon discover that this is not a hard numbers game, but instead calls for the development of Engineering Judgement.
