Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Student is able to: - Explain the principal concepts of thermodynamics and their importance in materials study; - - 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 and binary systems with intermediate phases; - Outline the behaviour of both metastable and stable iron – carbon system and deduce properties of typical alloys.
