Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to understand why certain materials are suitable for specific applications. What is the requirement profile (for example in turbine engines) and how can materials be improved to that effect. The students will have an overview of the variety of engineering materials for the realization of technical products. You will understand that the properties of engineering materials are essentially determined by their composition, manufacturing process and processing.

The students will understand the structure of various materials (metals, ceramics, polymers) and their important mechanical, thermal and magnetic properties. You will also understand that especially the temperature control during the solidification of alloys can lead to special forms of crystallites and microstructures. The focus of the metallic materials is on special steels, Al, Ti, Ni alloys, refractory metals and amorphous metals. Furthermore, ceramic materials and polymers are discussed.

Subject of course

Systematic of metallic alloys with focus on Al-, Ti-, Ni-alloys and highmelting metals (with a short overview on special steels, Mg-, Cu-, Co-alloys and amorphous metals). Improvement of strength and thermal stability. Microstructure and properties influenced by processing technologies like casting, powder metallurgy, hot forming, and cold forming.

Overview on ceramic materials and hard metals.

Systematic of engineering plastics (high temperature polymers, shape memory polymers, composites).

Teaching methods

Discussion of case studies and exercises.

Mode of examination

Examination modalities

Written and oral Exam!

Both parts of the exam (written and oral) need to be positive (>50 %.

During the lecture, it is possible to take part on the offered small tests. These are announced during the lecture. The points obtained will be added to the points of the written exam, if the exam is performed within the same year of study and at least 50% are obtained for the written part. It is not possible to worsen the result of the exam by taking part at the small tests.

The exams, written or oral, are based on the script.

Oral part: The oral exam is mandatory if the written part was between 50 and 55%, or if major sections of the written exam were below 50%. Typically, the oral part is 1-3 weeks after the written part. Procedure: 1h per group of 4-5 students (typically in teh BE building 4. floor). The subject matters of the oral part are the metallic and ceramic materials.
