Goals and Objectives: 1. To provide the students with an understanding of the basic classes of materials, their mechanical properties and modes of degradation due to exposure to various environmental conditions. 2. To provide the students with the basic understanding of fundamental concepts related to design, manufacture, principles of operation, functionality and longevity of the horizontal-axis wind-turbine rotors/blades. 3. To introduce the students to the utilization of the material constitutive , progressive-damage and failure models in computational engineering analyses (e.g. finite element analyses). Class policy: My expectations of you are similar to those you have of me. I assume that you will attend class, that you will be on time and prepared, and that we will maintain a professional, courteous relationship. Policy on academic dishonesty is that stated in the Clemson University Undergraduate Announcements. Students may discuss approaches to the homework problems, however, all work turned in for grading is expected to be the individual's effort, not a group or joint effort! Simple copying or paraphrasing is not allowed.Homework: Representative problems will be assigned for all topics. Homework is due one week after it is assigned. Solutions will be placed on the blackboard after the problems are due, and therefore, late homework will NOT be accepted. Since each student has ready access to computers and printers, all work submitted for grading MUST be produced on a computer word processing system and printed via a computer printer. Homework MUST be submitted in a hard-copy form. No electronic submission of the homework is allowed. Semester Tests: Two 50-minute, closed-book, close-notes tests will be given. Oral make up tests will be given ONLY for DOCUMENTED personal illness or DOCUMENTED immediate family emergency. Final Exam: No final exam will be given in this course. Grading: Final grades for this course will be determined according to the following percentages: Homework 20% Semester tests (40% each) 80% Grades will be assigned as following: A - 90 or higher; B - 80 to 89; C - 70 to 79; D - 60 to 69; F - 59 or lower. Prerequisites: “Any course taken which will later be used as a specified prerequisite for any ME or EM course must be completed with a minimum grade of "C".” All required 300-level ME and EM courses are prerequisites for ME440.
