The Engineering Design Sequence and Materials Development: 990 Gold-Titanium As a Case Study
Engineering design follows a six-step sequence. Demonstration of this sequence in materials engineering is less common. A case study is presented, using the 1989 paper by Gather on the development of 990 gold-titanium alloy. This paper identifies a need, develops the problem, identifies alternatives, demonstrates the use of metallurgical principles to identify alternative responses, and shows how more favorable options are selected. The paper can also be used to illustrate engineering design as an iterative process. The paper is also useful as a starting point for more in.-depth examination of specific elements of the design process, and lends itself to the creation of student exercises.
