AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

Modern engineering is characterized by the use of different classes of materials and the design of new advanced materials, also thanks to the recent progress in manufacturing technologies. To optimize the design of the components and to avoid catastrophic failures, a clear understanding of the mechanics of materials is necessary. This course aims to provide the essential elements for materials and component design, also starting from existing models in Nature. Some classes of materials will be studied considering their peculiarities in terms of mechanical behavior, evaluation of life under complex stress conditions (e.g. multiaxial fatigue) or defects. Composite materials of natural origin (eg bone, wood), biomimetic materials (inspired by natural materials) and multifunctional materials will be studied from an analytical and numerical point of view, and potential applications, from the biomedical field to the soft robotics and automotive / aerospace, considered.
