Applied metallurgy


Type: Optional

Credits: 6 ECTS (48 contact hours)

Suggested prerequisites: Fundamentals of chemistry; Phases diagrams; Mechanical testing procedures (tensile test, hardness test, toughness test, at least); Iron, steels and cast irons main phases;

Aims:  Providing skills and competences on design and optimization of heat treatments in ferrous and non ferrous alloys.
