AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

Provide the elements needed to understand the mechanical and functional properties and durability of the materials. Provide the criteria for the choice of materials with particular reference to materials for structural applications. The student will acquire the ability to choose the material based on the features of the project and to address the problems of material degradation.

Teaching methods

Lectures, exercises in the classroom (60 hours)

SYLLABUS/CONTENT
