Prerequisites for registration: not Bachelor state examination
Time allowance: full-time, 2/1 (hours of lectures per week / hours of seminars per week)
part-time, 0/12 (lectures per period / seminars per period)
Type of study: usual
Form of teaching: lecture, seminar
Mode of completion and credits: Exam (4 credits)
Course objective:
To acquaint students with the principles of solid structures, with their typical properties and testing as well as with the heat treatment principles. Students will get an overview of the different types of materials used in technical practice. They will learn about their characteristics and properties.
Course methods: Course paper, schematic pictures, demonstrations, interactive video.
Course content:
1.Solids and their structure, crystalline lattice, lattice failures, atomic bounds. (allowance 2/1)
2.Material properties and their testing, mechanical and technological material tests. (allowance 2/1)
3.Non-destructive material testing, tests at higher temperatures. (allowance 2/1)
4.Binary constitution diagrams, solid solutions, components, phases. (allowance 2/1)
5.System Fe-C, technical iron alloys, iron alloys, admixtures in alloys. (allowance 2/1)
6.Basic steel and iron types, steel phase transformations in solid state. (allowance 2/1)
7.CCT and TTT austenite transformation diagrams and their usage. (allowance 2/1)
8.Basics of steel and iron heat treatment, annealing, hardening, tempering, age hardening. (allowance 2/1)
9.Thermal-chemical treatment, cementing, nitration. (allowance 2/1)
10.Nonferrous metals and their alloys, classification, properties, usage. (allowance 2/1)
11.Plastics, basic types of plastics, application in technical practice. (allowance 2/1)
12.Mechanical, thermal and chemical properties of plastics. (allowance 2/1)
Learning outcomes and competences:
After completing the course, student:
-Will define solid matters and their structure, interpret basic material properties and the way of their testing
-Will explain the individual heat treatment methods, heat-mechanical processing and chemical-heat treatment
-Will identify the main technical alloys of iron and and interpret their application possibilities
-Will identify the main technical nonferrous materials and clarify their utilization possibilities
