Summary
Subject takes up basic knowledge of material science and upgrades knowledge of materials used in present-day industries including different physical, mechanical, thermal and other properties. Structure properties of selected alloys (precipitation, recristallization, recovery, deformation, etc.) of selected alloys on the base of Cu, Ni and Ti are mentioned in the context of their properties (creep, deformation behaviour, superplacticity, superelasticity, embrittlement) and applications in defferent types of materials: superalloys, intermetallics, metal matrix composites, metallic glasses, metallic foams, functionnaly graded materials, shape memory alloys. Knowledge enables to students acquiring survey of trends of new material development and of used present-day materials.
Learning Outcomes of the Course Unit
