DEN218 Graphical communications in design and manufacture The exam will comprise 20 marks for multiple choice and

80 marks for short answers on the question paper. There will be no choice. The material examined will cover the whole materials and manufacture lecture series. Below are listed some example questions, which are typical of the material that will e included! 1. What is meant by yield strength of a material
