Understand a material and process selection problem by taking into account environmental aspects in a rational manner

Use the CES Granta Edupack software to process a case study




The course is structured around the following points:

  • a general introduction on the evolution of materials and design
  • definition of a strategy for the selection of materials (specifications, elimination, classification of materials with performance indices)
  • process selection strategy
  • methodology and available numerical tools (in particular EduPack CES)

during thelab sessions on the CES software:

  • the databases
  • the use of the method and the performance indices
  • application to the choice of materials and processes
  • life cycle analysis
