Material properties 2. Manufacturing processes/issues 3. Environmental issues 2 UPK / MECH ME4211 Development of Green Products 2 UPK / MECH ME4211 Development of Green Products Factors in Material Selection for Green Design: Material Properties The performance of products depends on a combination of material properties based on the competing failure modes under the applied loading conditions There are two kind of properties: Intrinsic properties : physical properties, chemical properties, mechanical properties Extrinsic properties : eco-impact, energy content Density is the most important physical property in the design of lightweight structures One of the chemical properties of concern is the environmental resistance of various materials...
