Industry 4.0 claims for the continuous introduction of affordable and sustainable technological innovations. Newly conceived materials and related production and transformation routes can pave the way to new disruptive products/technologies. The design of such developments has nowadays to account not only for technical performances and costs, but also for the efficient use of raw materials, for energy savings and for the whole service life and post-life of products. In this framework, it is essential to increase the awareness of future engineers on materials design issues and tools. The aim of the course is to make the decisive step to move students’ attitude from passive materials users/selectors to pro-active materials designers. This result will be accomplished by providing to graduates increasing knowledge on materials design and development. In particular, the following topics will be addressed: - design rules for technological materials, accounting for the required application performances and for their whole life cycle - concept of multi-scale materials design: chemical analysis basic formulation; processing and post-processing elaboration; thermal treatment and surface finishing refining - awareness for exploring multi-materials development projects and for potential substitution of consolidated materials - review consolidated examples of advanced materials design and their related technological development - ability to use practical tools for materials design - multipurpose materials design accounting for technical performance, materials processability, materials sustainability, international and specific sectors standards and certification. - vision for exploring future trends on materials design This course fits perfectly into the MsC "Ingegneria dei Materiali per l'Industria 4.0" and is particularly relevant for the curriculum dedicated to Materials for Advanced Manufacturing , that elsewhere addresses topics like critical raw materials, manufacturing sustainability and improvements in industrial competitiveness.
The course aims at providing: - design rules for technological materials, accounting for the required application performances and for their whole life cycle - concepts on multiscale materials design: chemical analysis basic formulation; processing and post-processing elaboration; thermal treatment and surface finishing refining - influence of nano/micro-scale materials features on macroscopic properties; how to define ultimate performances of materials - awareness for exploring multi-materials development projects and for potential substitution of consolidated materials - review consolidated examples of advanced materials design - ability to use practical tools for materials design and selection - vision for exploring future trends on materials design
Knowledge and understanding: through lectures, seminars, educational visits and experimental labs, the student will learn to dominate the architecture and function of materials, with the ultimate target to design engineering products/systems for specific applications in technology. Applying knowledge and understanding: upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to apply his/her knowledge to the critical review of consolidated engineering materials and related processes, to identify eventual needs for materials substitution/improvement and to design materials capable to fill the residual gaps for product development. Making judgments: Through written reports and open presentations of the lab/group activities, the student will be able to understand, discuss collectively and critically, as well as to expose the results obtained during the course. Communication skills: Written reports improve the ability of presenting general understanding in an effective and concise way; group presentations allow to express the acquired concepts with an appropriate language and to hold a discussion about the course topics. Learning skills: the activities described so far, allow the students to acquire the methodological tools that are necessary to continue their educational career and to become familiar with the ever-continuing update on scientific achievements that is required in cutting-edge technological fields.
The following knowledge and skills are required for the correct use of the teaching: - Basic knowledge of materials families and process (acquired in dedicated Bch and MsC lectures). - Basic knowledge of materials applied thermodynamics (acquired in dedicated Bch lectures). - Basic knowledge of industrial manufacturing systems (acquired in dedicated MsC lectures).
