This is an introductory course in metallurgy covering chemical, mechanical, physical properties of metallic materials. Firstly, we will learn basics of material processing, such as phase diagrams and chemistry of metals. We also learn theory of dislocation that governs the mechanical properties of metals. Further, we gain insights into physical properties of metals including electric, thermal, magnetic and optical properties.
This course provides students with basic knowledge of metals, which is required to study various chemical, mechanical and physical properties. During the course, the unique properties of metallic materials will be compared with other materials for better understanding.
Students will learn various properties of metallic materials and acquire basic knowledge of metallurgy to understand their properties.
