In this course the knowledge received in mumerous earlier basic courses is combined for the critical evaluation of certain phenomena.
The goal of the coarse is the ability of the student to judge what conditions have to be varied and in which direction if a laboratory scale synthesis of specimens has to become an industrial production process of products.
Course Content (Syllabus)
Ιn the first group of lectures a basic solids synthesis process composed of several process steps is taken. For every process step a technological description is given and subsequently the differences are discussed when the same process step from a laboratory level is tranferred to a large scale level.
Subsequently the discussion focuses on the interactions between the various process steps and the consequences that might have in a large scale production potential disturbances in one of those process steps.
Finally within the context of the course the criteria for the formation of industrial R&D proposals are discussed as well as their differences from general research proposals. The general subject of the existing gap between research and production is also part of this discussion.
