Materials Engineering Training System for High School | Hands-On Materials Skills

Learning System: 96-MT1

Material strength properties affect the performance and safety of almost every product made. As technology has advanced, material choices have broadened and become more complex. Engineers and technicians alike must be able to select the proper material for an application and analyze material properties when a product fails. That’s where Materials Engineering comes into play.

Amatrol’s Materials Engineering training system (96-MT1) uses industrial quality components to teach students how to evaluate and use different industry grade materials. The 96-MT1 allows students to conduct a wide array of tests including tensile testing on steel alloys. Students learn industry-relevant skills in materials testing (tensile, compression, hardness, and shear), computerized data acquisition, chemistry of metals, interpretation of industry-standard numeric identification systems of various types of metals (steel, aluminum, brass, and copper), material strength analysis, and product design.

Learning Topics

  • Tensile/Compression Testing and Analysis
  • Shear/Hardness Testing and Analysis
  • Data Acquisition: Operation, Calibration, Programming
  • Material Science Concepts
  • Transducers
  • Destructive & Non-Destructive Testing
  • Alloy Design
  • Compression Testing & Analysis

Data Acquisition System Provides Hands-On Student Skills

Amatrol’s data acquisition system allows students to measure the stress and strain of many different materials through the use of sensors integrated with software. A signal conditioner unit interfaces with real-time data acquisition software using a graphical interface. Student investigation is enhanced through the ability to create custom formulas, configure channels, conduct time and event-driven sampling as well as display graphical results real-time.

Materials Engineering Training Features Wide Array of Industrial Material Testing

Students use the 96-MT1 to learn about non-destructive as well as destructive testing. Non-destructive topics include measuring, visual inspection, penetrants, magnetic-particles, ultrasonic and radiographic testing with hands-on skills in penetrants. Destructive tests covered include tensile, compression, shear, torsion, fatigue strength, toughness and hardness. Amatrol is unique in providing the ability for students to test a wide variety of industrial materials under conditions they will encounter in industry, including power tensile testing on steel alloys.

Interactive Materials Engineering eLearning Curriculum

Amatrol's materials engineering training system features interactive eLearning curriculum that integrates various types of learning methods to create an engaging, effective learning experience. Amatrol’s multimedia eLearning curriculum includes text with voiceovers, videos, 3D animations, pictures, and interactive activities, quizzes, and self-reviews. Specific materials engineering topics covered include: tensile/compression testing & analysis; shear/hardness testing & analysis; data acquisition operation, calibration, & programming; materials science concepts; transducers; alloy design; and destructive & non-destructive testing. Within these topics, learners will study objectives like selecting one or more testing methods given a description of component failure; using the modulus of elasticity to calculate stress, strain, and elongation; and using a data acquisition software formula to create calculated result data.

Free Learning Management System (LMS)

Amatrol eLearning is easy-to-use for both students and instructors. Its web-based interface is simple to navigate and available on any WebGL-compatible Internet browser. Instructors love Amatrol eLearning for its simple, yet sophisticated Learning Management System (LMS). The LMS allows instructors to create custom courses, monitor student participation, track course progress, assess knowledge levels prior to a course, and test knowledge levels after completion. Learners appreciate the fact that they can start and stop as needed, moving through each Amatrol course at their own pace. If a self-review reveals that they didn’t understand a particular topic as well as they thought they did, they can revisit it before moving on.
