Basics of Material Selection in Mechanical Design — Udemy — Last updated 11/2020 — Free download

Learn about the Basics of materialsand their selection for mechanical engineering design for design engineers

What you’ll learn

  • Basics of Material properties in mechanical design
  • What is Ductility, hardness, toughness, strength , fatigue etc
  • What is the generic material selection process
  • Importance of Material selection
  • Material indices to guide material selection
  • How to derive material index for simple mechanical loading applications


  • Basic understanding of mechanics of materials (not mandatory)
  • Awareness of mechanical design process and generic mechanical engineering

Materials are an integral part of mechanical design and engineering.

Understanding of properties , how they matter for product performance are a key knowledge set for any engineer designing products big or small .

This course attempts to provide insights into the following topics

  • Role of material selection in Design process
  • The importance of materials
  • Types of materials
  • The Mechanical properties
    • Modulus
    • Ductility and brittleness
    • Strength
    • Hardness
    • Resilience and Toughness
    • Fracture toughness
    • Fatigue strength
    • Wear
    • Creep
    • Internal damping – loss coefficient
  • Thermal properties – Conductivity, Thermal expansion  and heat capacity
  • Introduction to peculiar nature of various base materials and composites
  • Material charts
  • Material selection process
  • Material indices
    • Derivation of indices for various loading application
    • Applying indices on the Ashby charts for material selection

The course is intended to be a starting point for deep study into material selection .

Materials is of course a very vast subject . This course can be a good reference to get a taste for the field of material selection.

If you are a design engineer and looking to refresh and maybe pickup on new concepts regarding materials this course will be for you .

If you are a student who is looking to start their learning journey in area of materials of mechanical design  for product development then this should be a good starting point.

Course is designed to be precise and to the point and focuses on concepts and not only the facts .
