    The goalMetallurgical fundamentals of mechanical and deformation behavior of metallic materials. Response of metals and alloys to applied force. Dislocation theory of plasticity. Various strengthening and softening mechanisms. Overview of the main metalworking processes and its relationship with materials microstructure and mechanical properties.
    The outcomeThe students will be able to understand basic principles, processing, microstructure, and mechanical and deformation behavior of metals. They will be able to understand relations between metal working processes on the one hand, and microstructure and mechanical properties on the other hand.
    Contents of lecturesMechanics of Solid State. Concept of stress and type of stresses. Strain and types of strains. Stress-strain state in two and three dimensions. Mohr’s circles. Elastic stress-strain relations. Elements of Theory of Plasticity. Maximum and Octahedral shear stresses. Tensile deformation. True stress-strain curves. Metallurgical fundamentals. Concept of Crystal Geometry. Crystallographic planes and directions. Stereographic Projection. Lattice Defects. Dislocation theory. Burger’s vector. Stress field and energy. Dislocation reactions. Deformation by slip. Critical resolved shear stress for slip. Deformation of single crystal. Deformation by twinning. Strengthening mechanisms: (i) solid solution, (ii) precipitation and (iii) strain hardening, and (iv) strengthening from grain boundaries. Types of fracture, basic mechanism of ductile and brittle fracture. Tensile and impact toughness. Recovery and recrystallization. Plastic forming of metals. Classification of forming processes. Elementary discussion of hot and cold rolling, extrusion and drawing. Relationship between technological parameters of metal working processes and properties of metallic materials.
