Abstract Despite of the large array of available carbon nanotube (CNT) configurations that allow different industrial and scientific applications of these nanoparticles, their impacts on aquatic organisms, especially on invertebrate species, are still limited. To our knowledge, no information is available on how surface chemistry alteration (functionalization) of CNTs may impact the toxicity of these […]
In the scope of the curricular unit of Eco-design and Eco-efficiency, students are requested to develop an eco-efficiency enhancement proposal for a production enterprise. The aim of this work is to develop and consolidate knowledge on eco-efficiency, including analysis of water or energy consumption, wastes, emissions and other resources that can lead to production inefficiency, and […]
In the scope of the curricular unit of Eco-design and Eco-efficiency students are challenged to develop an analysis project of a selected product making use of an eco-design approach. Selected product can be a household appliance, a bicycle, etc. It is not mandatory to contact a production enterprise, but it can be useful. The aim of […]
In the scope of the curricular unit of Advanced Production Technologies students needed to develop a production and business plan/model making use of one or more advanced manufacturing technologies (additive fabrication, microtechnology, nanotechnology and/or others) and settled in a Circular Economy model. The product to be developed within this project should be the product developed […]
In the scope of the curricular unit of Advanced Production Technologies, students are challenged to analyze a real industrial problem and suggest a solution. The practical case of this semester has been presented by Prio Biocombustíveis S.A., an industrial company dedicated to the transformation of used cooking oils into bio-fuel. The problem placed by Prio Biocombustíveis S.A. […]
Abstract Weld lines occur when two melt streams are combined. They may result in purely cosmetic imperfections, but also may represent part failure if placed in an area on the plastic highly subjected to stress during service. Qualitative assessment of these structural and cosmetics defects is usually accomplished by conventional mechanical characterization, destructive by nature, […]

Authors: Nélia Alberto; Maria A. Fonseca; Victor Neto; Rogério Nogueira; Mónica Oliveira; Rui Moreira. Journal: Sensors. 2017; 17(11):2600. Abstract Shape memory polyurethanes (SMPUs) are thermally activated shape memory materials, which can be used as actuators or sensors in applications including aerospace, aeronautics, automobiles or the biomedical industry. The accurate characterization of the memory effect of these […]
