Research Activity

BB’s research interests cover the intersection of two broad, generally poorly-linked areas, known as “Materials for Electrochemical Energetics” and “operando Spectroelectrochemistry”*. These concern, on the one hand pushing our capabilities to fabricate functional materials for novel electrical energy storage systems, and on the other hand gaining a molecular-level understanding of the processes underlying the operation and durability of the different active components of devices such as batteries, fuel cells and supercapacitors.

 

Additional research topics he covers, include the development of microspectroscopic methods and electrochemical devices for specialized spectroscopic studies and the mathematical modelling of electrochemical phase-formation processes. As detailed below, it is worth noting here that BB developed a range of original operando linear and non-linear spectroelectrochemical and microspectroelectrochemical approaches, regarding both the wavelength range from IR to soft X-rays, and its related theoretical framework, to follow out-of-equilibrium electrochemical reacting interfaces with active phase-formation processes. This approach provides a unique way of gaining access to the dynamics of battery components as they behave in real life. The systems addressed include, in particular, Solid-Oxide Fuel Cells (SOFC[1]), Proton-Exchange Membrane Fuel Cells (PEMFC), Zn-air Batteries (ZAB) and Fuel Cells (ZAFC), but the methodology can be extended to all types of batteries.

BB has published more than 250 scientific papers in renowned International journals of relatively high impact, including, inter alia: Analytical Chemistry, Applied Materials & Interfaces, ChemElectroChem, ChemSusChem, Corrosion Science, Electrochemistry Communications, Electrochimica Acta, International Journal of Hydrogen Energy, Journal of Materials Chemistry A,  Journal of Physical Chemistry C, Journal of Power Sources, Nano Research, Physical Chemistry Chemical Physics, Scientific Reports, with a complete coverage of the best journals in the realm of electrochemistry. BB is the corresponding, first and last author of: 78%, 72% and 17% of these papers, respectively. According to Scopus, these papers have received more than 3100 citations and BB’s h-index is 26. For a complete list of publications see file that can be downloaded at the link below: https://www.unisalento.it/scheda-utente/-/people/benedetto.bozzini/pubblicazioni.

Moreover, BB filed 2 patents, and gave 35 invited presentations at International conferences, workshops and colloquia (for full details, see Points 1-3 of the file that can be downloaded from the link below: https://www.unisalento.it/scheda-utente/-/people/benedetto.bozzini/biografia).

Prerequisite: Sufficiency in calculus, physics, chemistry and basic metallurgy.

Overview - This is a self-contained course specifically designed for aerospace engineering students that will allow them to handle the key concepts related to the implementation of metallic materials in aircraft and will provide them with design guidelines and insight into maintainance, durability and safety of metallic components and metal-based on-board devices. Moreover, this course will provide basic information on aerospace batteries and fuel-cells in view of next-generation hydrid and electrical propulsion.

Learning Outcomes; after the course the student should be able to

*Describe the metallurgical basis of the mechanical resistance, fracture toughness and corrosion-cracking performance of alloys implemented in aeronautic devices. Both stuctural and propulsion systems will be addressed. Moreover the students will acquire a working knowledge of aerospace batteries and fuel cells relevant to in present- and next-generation aerospace systems.

*Formulate and solve simple alloy design tasks for aluminium and titanium alloys, superalloys and aeronautic steels and stainless steels.

*Derive the yield strength, fracture toughness and stress-corrosion cracking tolerance of aeronautic alloys from microstructural considerations.

*Illustrate durability and maintainence issues relevant to in-service and life-extension protocols.

Examination: written and oral.

The written part of the exams consists in carrying out simple computational tasks, designed to assess that the Student has a solid conceptual and quantitative grasp of the of key topics of the course.

The oral part of the exam consists of an oral interview (typical duration 45 min) in which the student will be asked to expound three topics: (i) a theoretical one concering the strengthening mechanisms relevant to aeronautic alloys; (ii) one concerning a specific aeronatic application, addressing its properties, metallurgical structure and heat treatments and (iii) one concerning fracture behaviour, durability issues or the simple notions on aeronautic batteries/fuel cells.

The interview is aimed at determining to what extent the student has: 1) the ability to identify and use data to formulate responses to practical problems in aerospace alloy use and design, 2) problem solving abilities and the capacity to integrate different concepts and tools.

Teaching Methods: The course provides the basic physics and engineering tools to define and carry out metallic material design tasks for aerospace applications, including a specialized theory of stengthening mechanisms, fracture mechanics, aeronautic alloy design, corrosion, mechamochemical damaging modes an prevention, and aerospace coatings. Moreover, elementary, but accurate information is provided on electrical energy storage devices (fuel cells and batteries) that are cutting-edge applications of metal science for next-generation electrical and hybrid aircraft systems. After a fundamental assessment of the individual topics, technological  aspects are addresses and a selection of case-studies is analyzed in depth. Constant reference is made throughout the course to physical meaning, experimental aspects and practical engineering problems. The key methodological highlight of the course is the unceasing tension to rationalise each content and each conceptual step expounded and to represent an attitude to the quantification with fully formalized approaches, though with simplification and approximations appropriate for the knowledge level of the Students.

Overview

This is a methodological course focussing on master-level metallurgical conceptual tools, integrated by foundations of laboratory instrumentation and data processing. The aim is to offer to the students a self-contained, close-knit body of concepts, enabling them to face advanced topics in theoretical and experimental metallurgy. The course will provide a firm basis of general value, liable to provide a strong theoretical toolbox to face state-of-the-art and next-generation challenges in technological and research fields in which metals play a key role. The contents of this course have been specifically designed in order to provide the students with enough background and guidelines to act independently in completely novel industrial and research tasks.

Learning Outcomes; after the course the student should be able to

*Describe processes in which metallic materials – as such or in as far as reagents and/or products – are involved in terms of thermodynamic, kinetic and mass-transport equations and integrate these equations in a selection of technologically relevant situations. Describe, in general, classes of experimental set-ups and reactors relevant to the study or synthesis/modification of metallic materials. Describe collection and processing actions for data generated in the activities described in the previous point.

*Formulate and solve simple design tasks for metallurgical structures and experiments.

*Derive quantitative relationships to predict simple cases of trasformation of metallurgical structures as well as structure-property relationships.

Teaching Methods: The course provides the basic physics and engineering tools to define and carry out materials science design tasks, including thermodynamics, kinetics and fabrication devices. Moreover, elementary, but effective data acquisition and analysis tools are provided. After a fundamental assessment, technological  aspects are addresses and a selection of case-studies is analyzed in depth. Constant reference is made throughout the course to physical meaning, experimental aspects and practical engineering problems. The key methodological highlight of the course is the unceasing tension to rationalise each content and each conceptual step expounded and to represent an attitude to the quantification with fully formalized approaches, though with simplification and approximations appropriate for the knowledge level of the Students.

Examination: written and oral.

The written part of the exams consists in carrying out simple computational tasks, designed to assess that the Student has a solid conceptual and quantitative grasp of the of key topics of the course.

The oral part of the exam consists of an oral interview (typical duration 45 min) in which the student will be asked to expound three topics: two of them of theoretical content and one of them of experimental nature. The purpose of the first three questions is to assess the ability to identify and use the contents expounded in the course to formulate responses to technological problems in structural or process metallurgy. The fourth question will deal with a case study and will be aimed at giving the student a chance to prove her/his  problem solving abilities and the capacity to integrate different concepts and formal tools.
