What detailed Study are you doing?

I was just curious to see what detailed study everyone is doing. For me, it's Materials and structures. I have found it REALLY easy and I'm quite enjoying it. What is everyone thinking of theirs if they have started it?

We're doing materials and structures as well. I'm so glad we're not doing further electronics.

Further electronics is not like electronics, area of study two. It is pretty easy, in my opinion.

I am also doing further electronics.  Best out of the three, IMO.

Majority will be doing structures and materials (across the state) because that was in the old study design (old, as in 2004). Similarly, in U4 most people will be doing sound.

I found structures and materials to be the hardest area of study by far, boo to engineering :P

structures and materials is hard? =O. What is structures and materials anyway? Is it like chemistry or ambiguous stuff?

Just from my point of view it was :P

The only thing I can remember at the moment is stress and strain graphs. xD
And labelling parts of a structure as being in tension or compression
Too hot to think of other things.

Its not like chem at all

Structures and materials is the study of how properties of constructions and materials are affected by forces and loads, and what measures are put in place to ensure they are safe. You look into things such as stress, strain, torque etc.

I'm doing stress/strain graphs anyway, as part of my EPI

Structures and materials are:

Stress (F/m^2) + Strain (change in length/length)

Stress vs Strain
   stiffness - aka young's modulus
   strength - highest stress
   yield point/elastic region - linear region of graph
   plastic region - everything past linear region
   break point - the end of everything
   toughness - total area under graph

torque (and equilibrium conditions)

and that is ALL!

that's, uh, a few definitions, and a stunning 4 formulas :D

Of all the revision lectures I went to, I found the overwhelming majority do structures and materials (like I did).
Twas funny @ end of year tho... in the entire lecture room, I was the ONLY person who was doing photonics.

Im doing Structures as well.

Does the EPI count as SAC or is it just a requirement of the course to do it?

My school did structures and materials and I believe it was the easiest of the detailed studies for unit 3. If you're planning on going into materials engineering, or just happen to be doing it, like me, you'll find a lot in common. The same stress/strain graph is revisited but in more detail, amongst other things.
