Credits allocated: 5
Recommended semester/trimester: -- item not defined --
Level of study: 1. + 2., 2.
Prerequisites for registration: none
Assesment methods:
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.
Course contents:
Structure of solid state (amorphous, crystaline and quasicrystalline materials; chemical and physical bonds)
Lattice defects (thermal vibrations, point, line, surface and volume defects)
Vacancies and interstitials (formation, energy, mobility)
Dislocations (formation, classifications, energy, mobility, interactions)
Stacking faults and twins (formation, energy, interactions)

Types of diffusion - classification
Diffusion coefficient, termodynamic factor, driving force of diffusion, 1st Fick's law, diffusion flux
Inter-diffusion, Kirkendall efect, mechanisms of diffusion
Diffusion kinetics, 2nd Fick's law, solution of kinetic equations
Experimental determination of diffusion flux, practical aspects of diffusion

Classification of surfaces in solid state
Equilibrium segregation (Lagmuir-McLeanova equation, interaction coefficients)
Non-equilibrium segregation
Segregation enrichment and practical aspects of segregation

Classification of strengthening mechanisms, examples of softening
Solution strengthening
Precipitation strengthening
Grain boundary strengthening
Practical aspects of strengthening processes
