Material selection is one the most important aspects that engineers and designers have to keep in mind during the design and production of any work. A good material selection is fundamental to lower the production costs, to improve product performances (e.g. durability) and to raise customers’ satisfaction, so it is vital to be aware of the characteristics of each material and the way to improve these characteristics.
