OVERVIEW

The Course is intended to provide to the students the skills and competences to manage Composite Material in biopplications. Carbon Fiber and Ceramic reinforced based material will be introduced, showing case studies and real applications. Scaffold and biocompatible, either permanent either absorbable, composites will be studied along the Course.

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

Students will be able to understand and manage the composite materials need and requirements in the framework of bioapplications

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

Being natural tissue materials structured as composite materials it is extremly important to learn the way they behave and the possibility to create and shape artificial comnposites able to fit with natural tissues.

TEACHING METHODS

Lectures (44 hours) and classroom discussion of the project selected by each student (4 hours). 

SYLLABUS/CONTENT

Composite structure, matrix and reinforcement core, anisotropy properties of composite materials to be applied to bioapplications. Carbon based material, different typologies of Carbon Fibers, Pitch and Pan, fiber and matrix creation. Techniques, methods to build a composite material. Polymer based materials for scaffolding, mechanical and chemical properties toward adhesion issues. Scaffold absorption and desorption. Techniques to make scaffolds: 3D printing, Rapid Prototyping, porogen diffusion. Graphene and 2D structured materials
