    The goalProvide students with an understanding of the metals and alloys structure, its stability and effects on material properties. In order to be able to predict the properties of metallic materials for specific applications, students need to understand the processes of structure modification occurring in the various commercial alloys.
    The outcomeStudents attain knowledge and appreciation of the alloy theory principles, qualitative and quantitative evaluation of structure, as well as structure/property relation, so that they will be able to predict the properties of various metallic materials.
    Contents of lecturesConsider the structure (atomic structure, crystal structure and microstructure) of metallic materials, electron configuration, determination of crystal structure and microstructure using experimental methods, development of microstructure in conventional and advanced metallic materials, microstructure modification for improving properties or achieving specific properties, relationships between the structure and physical, mechanical and technological properties of various metallic materials.
    Contents of exercisesCover the topics related to electronic structure of atoms and physical properties of metallic materials, alloy theory, crystal structure of alloys and method of its determination, structural analysis of metallic materials using the various methods of optical microscopy, quantitative description of microstructure, influence of crystallization conditions and applied heat treatments on microstructure development, relationships between the microstructural changes and mechanical characteristics of metallic materials, microstructural analysis and properties of ferrous and nonferrous alloys.
