LABORATORIO DI BIOMATERIALI is a practical introductory course to materials mechanics. The course is semi-annual, takes place in the second semester, includes 3 hours of lessons per week and the assignment of 3 training credits.
Practical teaching aimed at acquiring fundamental operational knowledge on types and properties of materials in relation to biomedical applications.
The module intends to provide the basic knowledge of some material properties. The knowledge of these concepts is aimed at biomedical applications.
Attendance and active participation to lectures and individual study will allow the student
- knowing some techniques and tools for measuring the properties of a solid and liquid material;
- identifying the tools and the main techniques to characterize a material;
- visualizing and measuring a fluid flow field;
- applying the hydrodynamic principles in laboratory.
Basic notions of chemistry and physics
After the first introductory lessons, they will take place in the laboratory.
The microstructural characterization of a material: optical and electron microscopy (SEM)
Physical-chemical characterization of a material: rheometry
Mechanical characterization of a material: static and dynamic mechanical tests
The continuous model
The properties of the fluid
Introduction to kinematics

Written report on laboratory activity and discussion.
The student will have to demonstrate knowledge of the basic instruments useful for characterizing a material from a microstructural, chemical-physical and mechanical point of view
