Trends in the development of functional materials
-Introduction to engineering design. Types of the projects. Analysis of the design process. Design tools. Material functionality/materials type relationships, analysis of the shape, final product and manufacture methods.
- Basic material characteristics (mechanical, electrical, thermal, etc.). Classifications of the known functional and structural materials, evaluation criteria, e.g. specific properties, fracture energy, strain, electrical conductivity etc. Definition of the characteristic properties of particular groups of materials, i.e. polymers, metals, ceramics, composites.
- Discussion on the possibility of classifying different properties of materials using characteristic figures for materials selection, eg. Young’s modulus – Mechanical strength, Young’s modulus – density.
- Comparison of various material groups and their properties by means of the charts for materials selection in engineering design, e.g. Young’s modulus/strength, Young’s modulus/density. Practical aspects of charts for material selection in engineering design, optimal material selection, maximization of functionality of devices/products.
- Introduction into “Functionality Index”, analysis of its meaning, examples of FI for simple shapes. Procedures for selection of materials for a specific application. Criteria maximizing functionality of a material. Examples of materials selection.
-Calculation examples of Functionality Index for the elements having cylindrical shape i.e., rods, tubes, columns together with materials selection. Determination of optimal solutions using characteristic records of different materials. Computation examples of Functionality Index and material selections for the various applications, e.g. beams, mirrors of large telescopes, springs.
– Materials selection involving shape factor of the engineering design. Shape factors. Mathematical formulas involving basic shape factors of a material . Shape factor and functionality index. Shape factor for internally cross-shaped of a device. Diagrams of materials selection involving the shape factor.
- Cumputational problems related to the determination of functionality index involving shape factor. Computational tasks related to the determination of functionality index involving optimal shape of a designed material. Determining the optimum cross-sectional shape of a device. Diagrams supporting selection of appropriate methods for materials manufacturing.
-Student presentations on selected topics referring to functional materials.
