Prerequisites for registration:
Assesment methods:
During Semester students will write 2 tests. The sum of points for the test is 20 pionts. To pass the tests should be obtained in the sum at least 10 points. Exam, consisting of written and oral part is rated a maximum of 30 points. On successful completion of the exam should be obtained at least 18 points. Students will get credits for the subject if they successfully complete the written tests and exam. Evaluation is done as follows: A 46-50 points B 41-45 points C 37-40 points 32-36 points D, E 31-28 points.
Learning outcomes of the course unit:
The course enables students to acquire deeper knowledge of crystallography, electron theory of metals and thermodynamics of metal systems. Provides an overview of the deffects in metals and alloys, the theory of diffusion processes in metals, the phase transformations in solid state and the thermodynamics and kinetics. Students will obtain knowledge of the physical methods of study of the structure of metals and alloys and their use in studying relations between structure and properties.
Course contents:
Electronic structure of free atom. Fundamentals of crystallography. Physical properties of the metal , electrical and magnetic properties. The electron theory of metals. Phases in metallic systems. Terms of thermodynamic stability of the system. Thermodynamics of metal systems. The relationship between the relative positions of the curves of free energy and equilibrium binary diagrams Defects in metals and alloys. Thermodynamics of defects in metallic systems. Basic theory of dislocations. Energy of dislocations, their interaction in the process of plastic deformation. The reactions between dislocation. Plasticity of metals. Diffusion in metals and alloys. General and Fick approach. Diffusion in a compound and multi-component system. Effect of disorder on diffusion. Speed ​​of reaction, Arhenius equation. The theory of phase transformations. Crystallization from a thermodynamic point of view. Solidification of single phase phase and eutectic alloys. Phase transformations in solid state. Precipitation processes in supersaturated solid solutions. Thermodynamic analysis of the precipitation process. Physical methods for the study of metals and alloys.
