Course Title LIGHTWEIGHT DESIGN OF SMART MECHANICAL SYSTEMS
Course Type Mono-Disciplinary Course
Credits (CFU / ECTS) 8.0
Semester First Semester
Course Description Current and future trends in the design of mechanical structures are focused on mass reduction and systems integration. In this prospective, the course aims to enable students, by giving the proper theoretical and practical information, to face these problems. The first part of the course is devoted to the study of the Finite Element Method as a tool for mechanical design. The course starts from the basics principles of the method and covers some advanced topics such as contact, non linear and stability analysis. Multi-objective and structural optimization will be introduced with particular focus on their practical utilization with Finite Elements models. State of the art commercial software will be used. Lightweight materials, such as composite and rubber like materials, will be discussed in the second part of the course. Finite elements analysis and structural optimization of such materials will be presented by practical examples. Design of smart structures for diagnostic and load sensing will be considered with reference to metallic and composite materials. Practical applications will be shown. In the last part, the course will focus on the life cycle analysis of the components and the corresponding design techniques. Practical lessons and seminars will be proposed to show the practical application of the theoretical concepts discussed in class.
