Hours & Credits
OverviewSolidification, welding (emphasis on effect of welding on microstructure, HAZ?s etc), fundamentals of metal working (including hot working, Zener-Hollomon parameter, dynamic recovery and recrystallization and cold working including slip line field theory, slab and upper bound analyses, formability, residual stresses), powder metallurgy and sintering, machining, recrystallisation phenomena. Emphasis on the effect of processing conditions on microstructure and hence properties. Common classes of magnesium alloys, copper alloys and cast irons to be taught illustrating some of the principles involved.
Courses and course hours of instruction are subject to change.
Credits earned vary according to the policies of the students' home institutions. According to ISA policy and possible visa requirements, students must maintain full-time enrollment status, as determined by their home institutions, for the duration of the program.
