Fracture Education in Engineering.
Sidey, D.; And Others
Fracture mechanics is a multidisciplinary topic which is being introduced to undergraduate engineering students in such courses as materials engineering. At a recent Conference on Fracture held at the University of Waterloo, a session was devoted to fracture education. Some of the ideas presented at that session are included and discussed here. The method of teaching fracture at Waterloo is then described. This method uses a cooperative system with alternate work and study terms over a five-year period. The paper concludes by focusing on methods of teaching and their relevance to mastery of the desired information and skills. (BB)
