PERIOD: MARCH - JUNE This course describes some fundamentals of the design of mechatronic systems and structures. Their operation is based on the energy conversion between different physical fields, aimed to control, monitor or energy harvesting applied to mechanical systems. Some methodologies applied to the structural mechatronic design and to the integration of complex industrial systems or of machine components are proposed. The product lifecycle development of the mechatronic system is decomposed by analysing some typical coupling mechanisms, based on the interaction between the electric, magnetic, piezoelectric phenomena and the structural behaviour, or upon the material phase change as in shape memory alloys and on the application of optical fibres. Some special industrial applications are described, as the micro–electromechanical systems (MEMS). Si fa cenno, infine, agli aspetti di integrazione del componente meccatronico con l’intero sistema, con alcuni esempi tratti da varie applicazioni industriali, oggi sempre più basato sul Model Based Systems Engineering. The course is an introduction to the topic, aimed to show the state-of-the-art even in terms of industrial application.
