    The goalThe goal of this course is to provide an understanding of the phase transformations occurring during the solidification, plastic deformation and heat treatment of metallic materials. Students attain knowledge about the transformation-induced microstructural changes and transformation kinetics altering the material properties.
    The outcomeStudents will be able to produce the desired microstructure and in turn desired properties of metallic materials for various applications by controlling the transformation behavior of materials.
    Contents of lecturesConsider the driving force for phase transformations in solids, mechanisms of diffusional transformations involving short-range or long-range diffusion and diffusionless transformations, role of various structural parameters, kinetics of phase transformations, diagrams of isothermal transformation or time-temperature-transformation (TTT) and continuous cooling transformation (CCT).
    Contents of exercisesConsider the thermodynamic and crystallographic concepts of phase transformations, diffusion in metals and alloys, nucleation and growth of stable nuclei, types of interphase interfaces and shape of second-phase particles, mechanisms and phase transformations rates, generation and interpretation of TTT and CCT diagrams for various metallic materials.
