Course description

knowledge of solid mechanics and materials science and technology

This course provides a strong interdisciplinary approach to composite materials in view of their application in aeronautic structure. Competences on polymer matrices and reinforcements, mechanics of anisotropic materials, fabrication technologies of thermoplastic and thermosetting matrix composites are provided. 

Knowledge and understanding:

The course provides the basis  of knowledge to understand and solve complex new problems  in design and  processing of composite materials accounting for anisotropy and reactive processing

Applying knowledge and understanding

The student will be able to apply the basic knowledge on mechanics of anisotropic materials to the design of simple structural elements. A multidisciplinary approach is presented accounting for chemical, materials and mechanical engineering aspects.

Making judgements

Simplification and synthesis  of complex problems is presented in order to promote the judgement and evaluation capabilities of the students

Communication

The course promotes the development of the following skills of the student: ability to expose in precise and formal terms an abstract model of concrete problems, identifying the salient characteristics of them and discarding the inessential characteristics; ability to describe and analyze an efficient solution for the problem under consideration. A seminar on composite properties is assigned to students

Learning skills

Autonomous learning is promoted thanks to the use of: different books and slides,  numerical methods, homework exercise to be solved in groups of two. 

Lessons, practice with a software implenting micro and macromechanic of composite materials, visit to an industrial plant. Self evaluation tests after  each topic by Kahoot

Oral exam after a seminar on composite properties and a homework .

Discussion of an assignment followed by an interview

For any question write an email to alfonso.maffezzoli@unisalento.it
