Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

- Explain the principal concepts of thermodynamics and their importance in materials study; - Outline the internal structure of structural materials on different scale ranges; - Describe the basic properties of structural materials and methods how to evaluate them; - Clarify relationships between internal structure and properties of structural materials; - Outline basic processes – solidification and solid phase transformations – in one-component systems; - Differentiate the behaviour of two- component systems and describe eutectic, eutectoid, peritectic and peritectoid reactions; - Analyse more complicated binary systems; - Outline behaviour of iron – carbon system and deduce properties of typical alloys.
