    The goalProvide students with an understanding of the equilibrium phase diagrams and structures of metallic materials, as well as the knowledge needed for development and characterization of microstructures determining the required properties of ferrous and nonferrous alloys. The knowledge of the microstructure prediction and experimental methods for structural analysis enables the quality control and design of metallic materials with desired properties.
    The outcomeStudents attain knowledge about the equilibrium phase diagrams and effect of process parameters on the metallic materials microstructure, so that they would be qualified to predict the microstructural characteristics of various structural components controlling the properties. After completing this course, students will also be able to characterize the microstructure using the light microscopy.
    Contents of lecturesConsider the crystal structure and microstructure of metallic materials, crystalline imperfections, experimental methods for structure determination, relationships between equilibrium phase diagrams and microstructures, representation of phase equilibrium in binary and ternary metallic systems, interpretation of phase diagrams, development of microstructures during equilibrium and nonequilibrium solidification, relationships between processes employed, development of microstructure and obtained properties, as well as analysis of phase diagrams, microstructures and basic characteristics of selected binary and ternary alloys.
    Contents of exercisesCover the topics related to metallographic preparation of samples, examination of metallic materials microstructures using light microscopy, qualitative and quantitative evaluation of microstructure, experimental determination of equilibrium phase diagrams, analysis of equilibrium and nonequilibrium microstructures of ferrous and nonferrous alloys.
