Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Student will be able: to explain metallurgical processes during melting of iron and nonferrous metals; to describe manufacture of castings from cast irons and nonferrous metals; to know material and foundry properties of cast irons and nonferrous metals; to apply influencing of primary crystallization of alloys.

Teaching methods

Individual consultations
Experimental work in labs


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.
