    The goalStudents will learn processes and technogical schemes for iron, steel and nonferrous metals and alloys production from natural resources and recycling. Primary alloys, alloying technology, rafination and treatment of liquid metal. Basic principles of casting, hot and cold deformation and higher quality of products. Valorization of scrap and byproducts.
    The outcomeKnowledge of processes and technological schemes for production of metals and alloys, their casting, deformation and recycling.
    Contents of lecturesImportance of metals in history. State of art and perspectives of production development. Properties and application of ferrous and nonferrous metals and alloys (iron, steel, Al. Mg. Cu, Ni, Pb, Zn, Sb, Sn, noble and rare metals. ; Preparation of ores and concentrates. Differenr technologies of production, rafination and homogenization (chemical reactions, fuels, slags, removal of impurities, deoxidation, degazation). Technological schemes and specificaal features of some processes. ; Mold and continuous casting (solidification, phenomena on contact liquid-solid, tundish). ; Hot and cold plastic deformation (technologies, hardening mechanisms, recrystallization static/dynamic, cooling rate, phase transformations, surface quality). ; Surface treatment, corrosion behaviour, physicaal and chemical properties, etc. Recycling, scrap and byproducts, sustainable technologies.
