Visit of Dr. Ernesto Zumelzu Delgado

During the week of November 11th-15th, and in the framework of the Master’s Mechanics of Materials and Structures, we will receive the visit of Dr. Ernesto Zumelzu Delgado from the Universidad Austral de Chile (https://www.uach.cl/). Dr. Zumelzu is the coordinator of the Master studies of: “Magíster en Ingeniería Mecánica y Materiales”, that has a double degree agreement with the “Master in Mechanics of Materials and Structures” (http://mastermms.udg.edu/) of the Universitat de Girona.

Dr. Zumelzu will teach two seminars related with the following topics:

“Degradation of Composite Materials for Engineering”
Description. Analyze and describe the main degradation mechanisms of different types of composite materials and criteria for prevention in engineering applications. Definitions. Biodegradation of composites. Galvanic reaction between metals and carbon fiber. Delamination by antinodes in polymeric coatings on metals. (6 hrs).

“Advances in the application of nanotechnology in composite materials (Review)”
Description. State of the art of new applications of nanotechnology in Mechanical Engineering and Manufacturing (4 hrs).
