  • Laboratory Of Mechanical Properties And Strength (30128)
  • תקציר הקורס:

    Abstract:

    This course provides students with practical experience
    in testing and calculating of mechanical properties of materials.
    Using various measurement equipment, the students apply topics learned
    in Material Science courses 1&2, and Strength of materials
    1 about responses of materials to different types of mechanical loading and heat-treatments.
    The students acquire knowledge of operating standard engineering
    measurement equipment and deepen their understanding of material properties.
  • Principles Of Materials Science & Engineering (30137)

    Abstract:

    Materials science applications in mechanical engineering,
    material structure, strengthening mechanisms, mechanical
    properties of materials (elastic properties, plastic and fracture),
    properties derived from engineering production processes, cold work
    processing versus hot work processing, general thermal treatments
    (stress relief, annealing and curing), mechanical design and welds,
    design dynamic properties, mechanical properties at high temperatures,
    diffusion and phase diagram. Steels - standard thermal treatments
    (annealing, normalizing, hardening, tempering), calculations of strength profiles,
    diameter dependence, surface hardening, steel welds. Aluminum -
    standards, thermal treatments, stress relief, surface treatments and welds.
  • Practical Aspects Of Biomaterials Science (30354)
  • תקציר הקורס:

    Abstract:

    This course introduce the student
    with the field of biomaterials science,
    the compatibility of implants to the tissue (biocompatibility) and standard biocompatibility tests.
    Examples from the orthopedic field, dental implants, cardiovascular field, skin,
    sutures and more will be presented. Additionally the student will learn about characterization
    methods of materials and surface modifications to enhance implants’ func tionality.
    Other important parameters will be discussed as sterilization methods, packaging compatibility,
    corrosion in biological environment and treatments to avoid corrosion, biodegradation of materials,
    while some ethical and regulatory issues will be discussed, preliminary tests of safety
    and efficiency of the device and more.  In addition, few laboratory experiments will be taken:
    Measure the density of solid materials and calculate the concentration of alcohol from its density,
    Create capsules from cross-linked polymer containing drug and monitor drug release, and
    a Tour at a materials laboratory at Tel Aviv University containing a 3D printer for
    hydrogels and cells, a spectrophotometer, a rheometer for measuring the viscoelastic
    properties of materials and a scanning electron microscope (SEM).

  • Material For Medical Engineering And Implants (50303)
  • תקציר הקורס:

    Abstract:

    This course introduces the students with the field of materials science,
    in particular the relation between the microstructure and its final properties.
    The main idea is that the func tion improvement of a component
    depends on its properties, which depends on the microstructure
    determined by processes. Suitable engineering planning will avoid failures.
    Microstructure will be studied from the atomic phase through the crystallographic
    and up to the macrostructure. The student will learn about characterization
    of materials and standard tests. Physical and chemical aspects of
    various phases will assist us in understanding the alloying
    purpose and will help us in composition planning.
    In addition, some ethical and regulatory issues will be discussed,
    preliminary tests of safety and efficiency of the device and biocompatibility.
