Materials in Today's World

Summary and Final Tasks



The extremely versatile range of different metals and alloys have produced an incredible range of application for these metals and alloys. In this lesson, we have explored how ferrous metals and the many different non-ferrous metals and alloy systems are historically and currently used. Understanding the strengths and weaknesses of these materials can allow one to properly select the right material for the desired application and the environment in which the application exists. In the next lesson, we will be looking at ceramics and their role as one of the primary materials.
