Quarterly Case Study Sessions

Everyone needs teaching inspiration now and again! Once a quarter, Educators using CES EduPack can join Dr. Claes Frediksson, who will present a new advanced industrial case study. After the session, the PowerPoint presentation with notes will be shared, ready to be used in the classroom. Please register for each individual case study web seminar session.

Electric Cars: Sustainability and Eco Design

Broadcast dates: June 14 and 19

Electric vehicles are currently experiencing a surge in interest because of their potential to reduce pollution and greenhouse gas emissions, high performance, and low running costs. These are, therefore, good topics that can be used to engage students in materials-related courses.

In this case study, we compare different powertrains using the Eco Audit tool, and explore the use of critical materials in batteries and electric motors. The electric and magnetic performances for the most popular types are visualized to understand the design.
