Objectives Introduction to the basics of construction materials to allow for an efficient selection of materials in the construction of mechatronic devices.
Subject Introduction of the most relevant structural materials for students of mechatronics and polymer engineering and science with a special emphasis on material properties relevant for mechatronics. Systematic methods are developed by means of examples to allow for an efficient selection of materials. Further aspects on legal regulations, preparation techniques, maintenance as well as cost, disposal and environmental compatibility and customer acceptance are also considered. Material classes discussed are metals, ceramics and glasses, polymers and elastomers as well as hybrids and composites.
Criteria for evaluation written examination with 50 % questions and 50 % calculations.
Methods Basic and praxis relevant methods in the selection of materials for constructions, in mechatronics, polymer engineering and sciences.
Language German
Changing subject? No
Further information In the lecture, the methods developed are deepened by practice examples.
