  • If sufficient demand
  • Material and process selection is a complex field of subject. The course communicates an applied methodology within material and process selection. After the course, the participants will be able to use a stringent methodology regarding material and process selection to meet specified product requirements using the software CES EduPack.
  • The art of material and process selection is a complex field of subject. Finding the most suitable materials and processes for a specified product requires a stringent procedure and knowledge from different engineering areas. The course aims to give applied skills regarding methodology to perform advanced material and process selection through presented theories and by use of a software tool (CES EduPack). The software consists of comprehensive databases covering material and process related data important to perform an optimized selection. Parameters and properties that determine the final choice of material can for example be mechanical loads, chemical environment, operating temperature etc. The selected material and the product design determine possible manufacturing processes. The outline of the course is:

    definitions and terminology
    design and design process
    engineering materials and their properties
    material property charts
    methodology during material and process selection
    The course consists of a number of given lectures and exercises. However, a major part of the course is to individually perform compulsory exercises, computer modelling and projects.
Knowledge and Understanding
  • For a passing grade the doctoral student must
  • be able to understand and apply the conceptions function, constraints, objectives and free variables during translation of product specific design requirements to parameters related to material.
    optimize the selection process through derivation and formulation of material indices.
    understand and be able to create and use material property charts in correlation to predefined selection criteria.
    formulate condition consisting of multiple constraints and objectives.
Competences and Skills
  • For a passing grade the doctoral student must
  • be able to perform a systematic material and process selection based on a methodology including the conception translation, screening and ranking.
    be able to execute advanced material and process selection based on the software CES EduPack.
    be able to critically analyze, estimate and formulate suggestions to durable solutions regarding materials.
    evaluate and develop solutions regarding materials in correlation to the specified design.
    be able to apply knowledge from previous courses.
Judgement and Approach
  • For a passing grade the doctoral student must
  • have a comprehension of the possibilities and limitations of the specified methodology during material and process selection
    be able to identify and utilize additional knowledge within selected areas of material and process selection.
