Written examination 100/100 4 hours D

Course content

Structures, defects and dislocations in solids. Transport properties (diffusion), mechanical properties (elasticity, deformation, strength), phase equilibria (phase diagrams), phase transformations, electrical properties. Basic principles of corrosion are discussed. Various materials are discussed, like iron/iron alloys, ceramics, polymers and composites.

Learning outcome

The main objective with this subject is to give a short introduction of the behaviour of various types of materials (metals, ceramics, polymers) and to discuss this in terms of their structure and composition.

Learning methods and activities

Lectures and compulsory exercises. If there is a re-sit examination, the examination form may be changed from written to oral.

Compulsory assignments

  • Exercises

Specific conditions

Exam registration requires that class registration is approved in the same semester. Compulsory activities from previous semester may be approved by the department.
