Material Selection and Processing

The TEP Package

The package consists of:

  1. Multimedia CD-ROM: including a software selection tool, material property database and printable versions of the material selection charts.
  2. A3 full colour case study booklet: starting with a tutorial on product analysis, this booklet undertakes 3 case studies in order to demonstrate the concepts involved in successful selection. The case studies are useful for DT as a whole, but each is targeted at a slightly different audience:

    Each case study is about 8 sides and focuses on particular design issues for the product concerned. Web-ready versions of the tutorial and plug case study can be found elsewhere on this WWW site.

  3. A4 booklet of charts: containing a colour version of each of the 11 material selection charts with summarised information on its features and use as well as some simple questions; also included are B&W versions of the charts for photocopying.
  4. Teacher booklet: further details on selection charts and process selection as well as answers to all the questions raised in the Charts in Action and the Case Study booklet.
  5. COMING SOON: a text book will be made available at a slight extra cost!

Details of how to order the package, which is priced 36 (+p&p), can be found on the TEP WWW site.
