Summary

In this course, students will get acquainted with basic types of engineering materials, especially from the point of view of their internal structure and from the point of view of their properties during service, or mechanical properties. Furthermore, students will learn the basic methods of characterizing the structure and mechanical properties of materials with an emphasis on practical aspects of the problem. Another part of the course will be basic methods how to increase the strength level of materials, or their toughness. This will be followed by basic knowledge of fracture processes and also the most important degradation mechanisms. Last but not least, students will learn about the most prominent representatives of metallic materials, polymers, ceramics and composites.
