The main purpose of the lecture "Exercise in Materials Design" is to learn the basics of physical metallurgy such as interatomic bonds, crystal structures, phase diagrams, microstructure formation which are necessary for the material design through short excise in every lecture and homework. This lecture is mainly provided for the students who have not systematically studied metallurgy in their undergraduate course, but it is possible take this class for the students who want to understand basic physical metallurgy much deeper. Since this class provides excise, there is a limitation of the maximum number of students. Then, applicants must contact to Prof. Hosoda by via email to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday 17 o'clock before the first day of this class with the information of their major in undergraduate course and present supervisors. When the applicant number is too much, selection for the permission will be made according to the purpose. This lecture is provided in Japanese only. The applicant students have to take the class "Exercise in Physical Metallurgy" in 2Q.
To understand the essence of interatomic bonding and crystal structures in metallic materials, and the relationships to phase diagrams, solid solubility of additional elements from the viewpoint of free energy, and microstructural formation through phase reactions in the phase diagrams for the design of metallic materials.
Material design, physical metallurgy, metallic material, atomic bonding, crystal structure, phase diagram, free energy, microstructural formation, phase reaction
|✔ Specialist skills||Intercultural skills||Communication skills||Critical thinking skills||✔ Practical and/or problem-solving skills|
After the short exercise, the way of thinking leading to the correct answers is provided. A few homeworks will be also provided. The students are divided in several groups for the group work. The students have to use calculators (including note PC), rulers, grid paper, data books and so on. However, using camera (with or without smart phone) or internet is not permitted.

Excise in every class and homework
Due to the effective excise, there is a limitation of the maximum number of students. Then, applicants must contact to Prof. Hosoda by April 6th via email to email@example.com with the information of their major in undergraduate course and present supervisors. If the number of applicant students is too much, the students whose master/doctor course research is related to metallurgy have a priority to take this class. The applicants are strongly recommended to take "Exercise in Physical Metallurgy" in 2Q together. If the applicants have any questions, contact to Prof. Hosoda prior to the application.
The students taking this class are strongly recommended to take the class "Excise in physical metallurgy" together. For taking this class only (without taking "Excise in physical metallurgy" in 2Q), the students have to contact Prof. Hosoda prior to the application. If the number of applicants is too much, permission is preferentially provided for the graduate students whose master or doctor research is related to metallurgy. Research students cannot take this class. The language is Japanese only. Contact to Prof. Hosoda in case of questions or unclear points.
