Laboratory Testing and Evaluation Report
A neatly presented word processed report of approximately 1500 words in length detailing the following:

A. Structure of report; e.g. contents page; brief, introduction, use of appropriate referencing (Harvard) and appendices.
B. All appropriate tables of results, calculations and graphs.
C. Discussion of the expected theoretical results and the identification of agreement or variation with the obtained results (using the presented tables of results and any additional appropriate graphs)
D. Explain:
i. If the behaviour of the materials fits with your expectation.
ii. Any variation in the results

Introduction
The objective is to investigate the structure and physical properties of engineering materials and the impact these have on manufacturing processes. The lectures, practical sessions and assessments provide a broad foundation of knowledge required by engineers and designers.

Learning Outcomes

1. Develop an understanding of the scope and capability of manufacturing process and systems
2. Understand and categorise properties of different groups of materials.

In order to achieve this, you will engage in small groups working together to provide the results to facilitate further work on an individual basis to complete the experiments and determine your own discussion and conclusions. You should relate the obtained data to the theoretical description of material types and their expected properties.
PRACTICAL EXPERIMENTS

The experimental investigations undertaken during these practical sessions cover preparing metallurgical samples for investigation, tensile and hardness testing of a range of materials.
Procedures and Data Collection
Details for each of the investigations are given on the associated laboratory instruction sheets.

Submission Requirements
A neatly presented word processed report of approximately 1500 words in length detailing the following:

A. Structure of report; e.g. contents page; brief, introduction, use of appropriate referencing (Harvard) and appendices.
B. All appropriate tables of results, calculations and graphs.
C. Discussion of the expected theoretical results and the identification of agreement or variation with the obtained results (using the presented tables of results and any additional appropriate graphs)
D. Explain:
i. If the behaviour of the materials fits with your expectation.
ii. Any variation in the results
E. Present your own conclusions on the achieved results, and make appropriate recommendations for any improvements to the procedures.
All design relevant information should be extracted from appropriate reference sources

Marking Criteria: The marking of this assessment will be based on the following requirements:

Submission Section A 10%
Submission Section B 30%
Submission Section C 30%
Submission Section D 20%
Submission Section E 10%
Total 100%

Submission Date: See front sheet
The assignment report must be handed in to the Student Support and Information Centre (Room 113 at Markeaton Street campus) on or before the date of submission.

Exceptional Extenuating Circumstances: It is the responsibility of a student to submit a claim for Exceptional Extenuating Circumstances (EEC) where an unexpected or unpreventable situation that will affect their performance in assessment arises. This must be submitted prior to the original submission deadline, with evidence and the work completed to date. See the link for further details: http://www.derby.ac.uk/eec

Late submission will be penalised

Academic Offences: An “academic offence” has been committed when a student tries to gain improper advantage for her/himself by breaking, or not following, the Academic Regulations concerning any part of the assessment process. This procedure applies to all students engaged in any University assessment activity whether on or off site including collaborative programmes.

Reading Materials: Module lecture and support notes; also see module reading list. Note: These sources are guides only to commonly available material. Students will also be expected to consult other relevant source material according to the nature of the project.

Undergraduate Marking Scale: This scale applies to Levels 3, 4, 5 and 6 in the University Credit Framework. The descriptors are typical characteristics of the standard of work associated with each range of marks. The descriptors are illustrative and for guidance only. They are not comprehensive. A mark of 40% is regarded as a minimum pass.
