Course Description The course deals with the criteria for a proper choice of materials in the energy sector (power generation and distribution, oil & gas, renewable energy systems, etc.). In these plants and equipment, the materials must be able to meet the severe requirements given by hostile environments for a sufficient time span; at the same time the costs associated with the life-cycle of the product (design, manufacturing, service, maintenance and dismissal/recycling) should be kept to a minimum. Issues related to properties and manufacturing of turbine, engines, heat exchangers, filters, pipings, valves, blades, cables, etc. will be addressed, with a concurrent engineering approach. The specific requirements to the material for specific applications, the range of materials and processes to for these applications and the consequences of the choice on the component reliability, operating conditions will be examined. The course will include the explanation of the properties and applications of different materials used for an advanced design: special steels, stainless steels, Ni- and Co-based alloys, Cr-Ni alloys, ceramics, composites, cellular materials and layered structures. Description of the topics The course will be dedicated to the choice of materials suitable for applications in the energy industry. Different material classes and their processes will be proposed concurrently with their interrelations with the typical component needs, the process technologies adopted for their construction and the typical degradation processes taking place during their service. Thus the course, characterized by a concurrent engineering approach, will be organized by focusing on several reference components relevant for and typical of the field of energy engineering. Each item will give the opportunity to present their specific material classes, component requirements, material degradation phenomena.
