Excursion, 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)
Binary constitution diagrams, solid solutions, components, phases. (allowance 2/1)
System Fe-C, technical iron alloys, iron alloys, admixtures in alloys. (allowance 2/1)
Basic steel and iron types, steel phase transformations in solid state. (allowance 2/1)
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)
Thermal-chemical treatment, cementing, nitration. (allowance 2/1)
Nonferrous metals and their alloys, classification, properties, usage. (allowance 2/1)
Plastics, basic types of plastics, application in technical practice. (allowance 2/1)
