In this module, students learn about 4 of the most relevant materials in engineering design: metals, ceramics, polymers and composites.
In this module students study elasticity. In particular, I have led the practical demonstration and implemented the section of analysis of strains with digital image correlation analysis, used since 2016.
In the laboratory session students are given a design problem that they have to solve using the FEA module of SolidWorks.
In the laboratory session students learn the basics of engineering drawing standards using Solidworks.
