Process Engineering Lab
Teacher in charge: Prof. Matteo Strumendo
Materials Characterization Lab
Teacher in charge: Prof. Irene Calliari
During the workshops, students will prepare samples of the most common metallic materials (cast iron, steel, aluminum alloys and titanium) using metallographic techniques and will observe them under an optical microscope. They will also carry out mechanical tests such as micro-hardness tests, and will observe the operation of other important characterization tools such as the scanning electron microscope (SEM) with EDS probe and the X-ray diffractometer (XRD), using exemplary samples.
Physics Lab 2
Teacher in charge: Prof. Paolo Sartori
The laboratory consists of 3 experiments related to the topics covered in class, with the application of the theory of errors studied in Physics 1, using a computer with predisposed programs:
- application of the Volt-amperometric method, measurement of an internal resistance of a generator and study of the characteristics of an RC circuit, using the LABPRO software and prepared circuits.
- measurement of the characteristics of the Magnetic Field in a short solenoid using a Hall probe.
- measurement of the wavelength using a diffraction grating for transparency, illuminated with the light of a Cadmium lamp.
