Materials Science: Physical Metallurgy 2
What you'll learn
- To introduce you to the principles of metal alloys and physical metallurgy
- You need to have passed secondary school physical science and maths. If not it is advisable that you do Physical Metallurgy 1
Physical Metallurgy 2 covers the basics of metallic structure formation. It handles alloy formation and the basic solidification of alloys through the exploitation of a basic phase diagram. It then jumps to the iron/ iron-carbide/ graphite system and lays the foundation of an understanding of the metallurgy, processing and application of ferrous alloys.
Physical Metallurgy 2 lays the foundation for study of further physical metallurgical subjects, such as casting processes, steels and other industrial alloys, application of alloys, heat treatment, etc.
Further material is available, but not yet online.
