    TEACHING MATERIALS AULAWEB

    OVERVIEW

    The aim of the course is the one to confer elementary skills connected with the relations between the microstructure and the chemical-physical and mechanical performance of a material and its resistance to corrosion and degradation, according to the principles of the science and technology of the materials. Finally attention will be paid to the design of the material and to its selection, also based on economic criteria.

    AIMS AND CONTENT

    LEARNING OUTCOMES

    Identify the more suitable materials for an optimal duration of the components, considering the load during the working, the operating environment, the variations of the properties induced by the production process. Evaluate the tests on materials in acceptance, during the production, in testing and information returning from the market. Keep in touch with material suppliers.

    AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

    The aim of the course is to give to the student basic skills on the microstructural and mechanical properties of materials.

    The student will acquire the ability to identify which materials are suitable in a given process and which treatments improve their characteristics and extend their life time.
