      The goalThe goal of this course is to provide a current knowledge on heat treatment of ferrous and nonferrous alloys for specific applications, conventional coating techniques and advanced surface modification methods involving laser, plasma and electron beam. Emphasis is placed on the relationships between processes employed, development of microstructure and obtained properties.
      The outcomeStudents attain an understanding of the relationships between the behavior of metallic materials and non-traditional processing techniques actually used in the thermal and chemical treatment of these materials, so that they would be qualified to employ the appropriate heat treatments for achieving the specific properties of various metallic materials and modify the work-pieces surface to enhance the wear and corrosion resistance.
      Contents of lecturesConsider the details of some advanced thermal processes, including the heat treating of steels, aluminum, copper, titanium and nickel alloys for specific applications, plasma- (plasma diffusion processes and plasma deposition of hard coatings), laser- and electron beam-induced surface modifications.
      Contents of exercisesCover diverse topics related to heat treatment and chemical heat treatment progress that may be used to solve problems in materials research and industrial practice.
