Materials Science: Physical Metallurgy 2

An introduction to Physical Metallurgy. Metallurgy can be described as a branch of material science focused on metals.

Physical Metallurgy 2 covers the basics of metallic structure formation. It handles alloy formation and the basic solidification of alloys through the exploitation of a basic phase diagram. It then jumps to the iron/ iron-carbide/ graphite system and lays the foundation of an understanding of the metallurgy, processing and application of ferrous alloys.

What you’ll learn

  • To introduce you to the principles of metal alloys and physical metallurgy.

Course Content

  • Solidification –> 9 lectures • 50min.

Materials Science: Physical Metallurgy 2

Requirements

  • You need to have passed secondary school physical science and maths. If not it is advisable that you do Physical Metallurgy 1.
