|327-0301-00L||Materials Science I||3 credits||3G||J. F. Löffler, R. Schäublin, A. R. Studart, P. Uggowitzer|
|Abstract||Basic concepts of metal physics, ceramics, polymers and their technology.|
|Objective||Based on the lecture 'Introduction to Materials Science' this lecture aims to give a detailed understanding of important aspects of materials science, with special emphasis on metallic and ceramic materials.|
|Content||Thermodynamics and phase diagrams, crystal interfaces and microstructure, diffusional transformations in solids, and diffusionless transformations will be presented for metallic alloys. |
The basics of the ionic and covalent chemical bonds, the bond energy, the crystalline structure, four important structural ceramics, and the properties of glasses and glass ceramics will be presented for ceramic materials.
|Lecture notes||For metals see:|
For ceramics see:
