MSK200_1

Materials Technology

This is the study programme for 2019/2020. It is subject to change.


When the course is completed, the students should have acquired a basic understanding of how materials structure and micro-mechanisms influence mechanical properties. Analyses and calculations based on crystal structure, stress-strain curves and fracture mechanical data are expected to be mastered. Understand simple phase diagram, in particular the Fe-C diagram. Explain the origin of the common microstructures in steel. Application of TTT and CCT-diagrams.
