Course content

Sustainable materials. Atomic structure and interatomic bonding. Structure of crystalline solids. Defects and dislocations. Diffusion. Mechanical properties, elastic and plastic deformation, strength. Phase equilibrium, phase diagram. Metals, structure, phase conversions. Carbon steels, corrosion- and heat-resistant steels, light metals. Ceramics and glass, structure and properties. Polymer. Composite materials. Corrosion and corrosion protection.

Learning outcome

After completing the course the student should be able to: - Explain how the life cycles of materials are, especially with emphasis on recycling in a sustainable society. - Explain how the properties of the materials are linked to chemical composition, atomic structure and structure. - Describe mechanical properties and how they are affected by defects and structure during elastic and plastic deformation. - Explain phase distribution and composition based on phase diagram and diffusion. - Explain the most basic facts about the most commonly used metals and their alloys. - Explain material failure and identify fracture types. - Explain the relationship between microstructure and properties, including the development of microstructure as a result of phase transformation. - Describe how alloys are processed and used. - Explain ceramics and polymers, their structure and properties, and how they are processed. - Explain different types of composite materials, their structure and properties, and how they are processed. - Explain how materials are degraded, especially metal corrosion.

Learning methods and activities

Lectures and cases (56 hours), compulsory exercises 9/12 (24 hours) and self-study (120 hours). One of the 12 excersices (topic metals) is mandatory for the course.
