      The goalThe aim of this course is to extend the acquired knowledge of the following methods of mechanical testing: tension testing, compression, bending, shear, and torsion testing, impact load testing, fatigue testing of materials, metal testing by nondestructive methods.
      The outcomeKnowledge about the process of testing, sampling, effects of specimen shape on the investigation, influential factors in obtaining a representative and reproductive results, about material properties determined by using particular testing methods, the interpretation of results, will allow the students to be well prepared for the autonomous work and to perform mechanical and technological research in laboratories.
      Contents of lecturesTension testing. Testing tensile properties of welded joints. Compression, bending, shear, and torsion testing. Impact load testing. Determination of energy initiation and propagation of cracks using oscilloscope. Factors that affect the impact energy. Brittle and ductile fracture. Fatigue testing of materials. Fatigue crack initiation and propagation. Fatigue crack growth rate. Testing of mechanical properties of materials at low and high temperatures. Wear resistance testing. Metal testing by nondestructive methods (radiographic testing, ultrasonic testing, magnetic particle testing, testing liquid penetrations, ECT, etc.). ;
      Contents of exercisesPractical training in the areas treated during the theoretical part of teaching.
