    this question is for Materials Failure Analysis. Can someone help me decide which is the best choice of material to manufacture a large vessel?? please explain how you did it, i'm not familiar with Schaeffler diagrams or how to use it exactly.

    I don't have the foggiest about the answer i'm afraid.

    I am learning to become an expert in the field of Quantity Surveying.

    Totally agree I'm looking at possibly MechEng for 2012 entry. Looked at the table and was like 'oh that looks ok!' then saw that WTF graph. All those lines and confusing words and wtf are those units for the labels on the x and y axis!!!!

    well to be exact, i'm studying medical engineering at bradford. the graph above is a Schaeffler diagram, and i need to learn this for materials failure analysis. medical engineering is basically the same as mechanical engineering but biased towards the medical/healthcare industry for example instrumentations, devices, prosthetics, tissue engineering and biomaterials to name a few.

    Thermodynamics (Enrico Fermi), the backbone of mechanical work/energy and will put you way ahead the sooner you get stuck in. Plus, practice advanced maths namely calculus and perfect your technique (K.A. Stroud) is a good book.

    Thanks. Also, did you have any work experience? I'd like to get some so it would improve my UCAS application but I've read that it is very hard to get because of health and safety.

    The only experience I had was in technical support, in a major service support company to the conumser electronic market. Apart from that, I didn't have direct experience in mechanical - as long as you can show the uni you have a keen interest and are an able student thats what counts. Actually my experience partly influenced me to study medical engineering because it involves the principles of both mechanical and electronic and I enjoy both.

    I haven't heard that it's due to health and safety - there's nothing dangerous about using computers in an office and attending meets - but more that because you're not terribly useful to a firm before you've even started your degree.

    I don't know anyone in my course who came straight from school that had work experience already. Getting work experience before your degree depends on who your daddy is and where you live. Someone who has no contacts and lives in an area where there is no engineering will definitely not get any experience. Universities are more concerned with your academics, as this is the best indicator that you will complete their degree. The strongest UCAS application for engineering is the one that has the highest grades.
