Course specific prerequisites

Basic courses in polymeric and metallic materials

Aim

The course aims to provide understanding of the complex context of product development with consideration of ecological aspects, a comprehensive overview of current applicable possibilities and related manufacturing processes. Search for and evaluation of alternative solutions for environmental adaptation are practised. The course is based on a life-cycle perspective and deals with the product development, manufacturing, product use and disposal.

Content

This course deals with environmental issues, such as selection of materials and manufacturing processes, in particular the balance of properties and manufacturing to the environmental aspects of products, mainly for products made of plastics and metallic materials. Prerequisites for environmental adaptation are discussed, particularly in the context of alternatives for disposal of products by reuse of products and materials, energy recycling, biodegradation and landfilling.

Organisation

The course includes lectures, discussions and an extensive case study. The lectures and the discussions will provide a survey of current topics and also give a frame for the case study alternatives. Case study work will be carried out in groups, to be performed in parallel to the lectures.

Literature

Attendences choice

Examination

Assessment will be based on fulfilment of the pedagogic goals and an approved case study, both the written report and the oral presentation.
