1.020 Ecology II: Engineering for Sustainability (MIT) 1.020 Ecology II: Engineering for Sustainability (MIT)

Description

This course provides a review of physical, chemical, ecological, and economic principles used to examine interactions between humans and the natural environment. Mass balance concepts are applied to ecology, chemical kinetics, hydrology, and transportation; energy balance concepts are applied to building design, ecology, and climate change; and economic and life cycle concepts are applied to resource evaluation and engineering design. Numerical models are used to integrate concepts and to assess environmental impacts of human activities. Problem sets involve development of MATLAB® models for particular engineering applications. Some experience with computer programming is helpful but not essential.

TALAT Lecture 2110.01: Automobile brake rotor - LCA in product design

Description

This lecture imparts knowledge about ?production and casting of SiC-particle reinforced aluminium metal matrix composite - PMMC (SiCAl7SiMg); use of Life Cycle Analysis. It provides insight to how to redesign a product using life cycle thinking and LCA to minimize the ecological side effects; the importance of having a thoroughly knowledge about the product's life and its environmental impact. Some knowledge of the concept of the product information structure - "the chromosomes" and familiarity with LCA methodology is assumed.
