Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

-student will be able to characterize metallic materials for the manufacture of castings. -student will be able to formulate principles and metallurgical processing of foundry alloys. -student will be able to describe the material properties for the type of casting.

Teaching methods

Individual consultations


The course is aimed at deepening knowledge on alloys of ferrous and nonferrous metals. It deals with the classification properties of metallic alloys and their analysis using different methodologies. The intention is to show the wider context of the production technology of metal alloys and their useful properties.
