Summary

 

Engineering Alloys - MATE97002

Aims

The aim of the course is to build an understanding of how to work with alloy systems; how metallurgists think about alloy development and select and process alloys for different uses. Case studies of incidents are used to explore how production and repair can impact upon life and lead to premature component failure. The alloys used as exemplar systems will depend on the interests of the teaching staff but historically aerospace materials have formed a significant focus.

Microstructure - MATE95004

Aims

This course is designed to allow students to progress in their understanding of thermodynamics and kinetics so as to allow them to investigate, explain and quantify the formation of microstructures by either solidification or by solid state phase transformations. It introduces them to a wide range of solid state phase transformations and through detailed analysis equips them with an insight into the scientific concepts underpinning the control of microstructures in primarily metals but also to some extent ceramics. This course also aims to: show how equilibrium phase diagrams can be used to predict the solidification process and the microstructure of materials that have been crystallised from a melt under equilibrium conditions; consider the effect of non-equilibrium solidification processes; and introduce examples from alloy, ceramic and glass-ceramic systems.
