Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Characterize basic concepts of the structural crystallography Characterize and categorize point and line defects in crystal lattice Arrange and discuss phenomena and methods of the structural analysis Discuss and interpret elastic and plastic deformation of crystals Analyze and discuss specially deformation of the single crystals, polycrystalline metals and alloys

Teaching methods

Individual consultations


The first section deals with structural properties of the ideals and real crystals. The theoretical characterizations and fundamental experimental methods are showed. The second part is focused particularly at the plastic deformation of pure metals and alloys. The hardening and softening mechanisms depending on various physical parameters are studied.
