    Nature of materials

    ME n.86, February/March 2009

    Experience teaches that a deep knowledge of the nature of materials and their distinctive features are essential for perfect application. Experience is an important tool: from habits we learn to avoid mistakes and above all we get information about the durability of materials over time. But today traditional practice is not enough if we want to open design to innovation.
