Objectives of the course
This course focuses on the basic of materials and technologies of interest for engineering. The aim of this course is to give students basic knowledge on metals and polymers and on their properties, in particular on mechanical and thermal properties.
Expected skills
It should provide engineers basic skills on metals and polymers and on their properties, in particular on mechanical and thermal properties.
Chemistry, Physics and Math courses
Introduction on metals, polymers, basic notions on ceramics, glasses and composites.
Correlations structure/property of materials. Crystalline structure and defects. Amorphous structure. Plastic deformation. Mechanical and thermal properties, their relation to materials structure. Phase diagrams. Fe-C phase diagram. Steels. Thermal treatments on steels. Cast iron. Non ferrous alloys. Polymers: properties, uses and related technologies.
Laboratories and/or exercises
A fully equipped experimental laboratory is a available for students willing to be tutored in experimental activity on materials properties. Attendance certificate will be provided at the end of the laboratory activity (facultative).
Students notes: ppt presentations given at the beginning of the course are not considered enough to pass the exam.
