The subject aims to provide more advanced and complementary knowledge related to metallic materials and their application in the mechanical industry than those provided in the first level courses of Italian universities. In particular, in the teaching of Science and technology of materials / Technology of metallic materials of this University. These are fundamental knowledges in the profession of a mechanical engineer. The teaching places particular emphasis on the understanding of the interdependence between the choice of a metallic material and the design of its working cycle: choice and design are conditioned by the desired and requested properties in working conditions; therefore, the following inherent aspects are dealt with, in particular concerning the metallic materials, together with the reciprocal correlations: 1) Principles of physical metallurgy and thermodynamics; 2) Manufacturing, heat treatment and mechanical processes; 3) Structures, microstructures and their properties; 4) Performance on site (mainly mechanical but also electromagnetic, thermal and in the presence of corrosion).

ModalitÓ di esame: Prova scritta (in aula);
Written exam with a duration time of indicatively 75 minutes and maximum mark of 30/30 with laude; it consists of 7-8 open or multiple response questions on all the topics covered during the semester, each evaluated from 2 to 6 points, according to the difficulty. The exam will test the knowledge of the students about: - Principles of physical metallurgy and thermodynamics; - Manufacturing, heat treatment and mechanical processes; - Structures, microstructures and their properties; - Performance on site (mainly mechanical but also electromagnetic, thermal and in the presence of corrosion). During the exam texts, handouts, forms, notes, electronic devices of any kind and internet connection cannot be used. After tests correction, all students can achieve information on their exam evaluation from the professors in a proposed meeting after around 1 week from date of the written exam.
