Materials and Design 6 credits

Course Contents

An important part of the product development process is about selecting a suitable material. A large part of the course is therefore intended to give deeper skills in materials selection and knowledge about the methods needed to choose the most optimal material for a specific product or component. To do this, a thorough understanding about the demands a product and its application is imposing on the materials properties is needed. In the course, not only mechanical and physical material properties are treated but also tactile and visual properties. Product design and how the product will be manufactured also influence the materials selection, and therefore design tools are introduced. The course also includes discussions on how the choice of materials affect the environment from a sustainability perspective.

The course includes the following topics:
- Repetition of materials and their properties
- How to use diagrams/charts to present materials selection
- Development of instructions for materials selection
- How to use software in the materials selection process
- Surfaces, surface finish and colors
- Environmentally conscious materials selection
- Influence of product design on materials selection and introduction to design tools such as DFM, DFA, and DFD
- Case studies from industry
