|University:||Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava|
|Faculty:||Faculty of Materials Science and Technology in Trnava|
|Course unit code:||TPM101_6I|
|Course unit title:||Transport and Transformation Processes in Materials I|
|Mode of delivery, planned learning activities and teaching methods:|
|Recommended semester/trimester:||-- item not defined --|
|Level of study:||1. + 2., 2.|
|Prerequisites for registration:||none|
|The student is classified in three sequential steps:|
1. Two written proof of knowledge on exercises, totally maximum 20 points.
2. Exam – wtitten test, maximum 50 points.
3. Exam – interview, maximum 30 points.
The final result expressed by mark is given with the sum of points obtained in particular steps: 92 - 100 (A), 83 – 91 (B), 74 – 82 (C), 65 – 73 (D), 56 – 64 (E), less than 56 (FX).
|Learning outcomes of the course unit:|
|The student gained knowledge of the solid state structure over the extent mastered at the study of subjects “Materials Science” and “Physics”. He/she became familiar with the classification and properties of lattice defects inclusive of interactions between them. He/she knows diffusion-related topics (Fick's laws, Kirkendall effect, diffusion coefficient, thermodynamic factor, up-hill diffusion) including mechanisms of diffusion and solving kinetic equations. He/she gained knowledge of both phenomenology of adsorption and segregation processes and formalism of equilibrium and non-equilibrium segregation at internal surfaces of the solid state. He/she became familiar with fundamental mechanisms of strengthening (solution strengthening, precipitation strengthening, grain boundary strengthening) and the role of lattice defects in strengthening of materials.|
