Skills to be acquired in this module
The students are able - outgoing from the microscopic structure of engineering materials - to understand its macroscopic properties, so that they are able to involve the behaviour of engineering materials into engineering requirements independently.
Module contents
Classification of engineering materials in groups
Constitution of engineering materials (microscopic structure, macroscopic properties)
Physical basics of constitution:
Constitution of single phase solids (crystals, amorphous materials, real materials)
Constitution of multi-phase materials
Basic diagrams of constitution of binary alloys
Properties of materials
Physical properties
Mechanical properties (plastic deformation, crack growth, friction, wear)
Groups of materials (metals, ceramics, polymers)
Selected materials (iron, aluminium, copper)
Testing of materials (an overview of methods)
