Materials Technology (MSK200)

When the course is completed, the students should have acquired a basic understanding of how materials structure and micro-mechanisms influence mechanical properties. Analyses and calculations based on crystal structure, stress-strain curves and fracture mechanical data are expected to be mastered. Understand simple phase diagram, in particular the Fe-C diagram. Explain the origin of the common microstructures in steel. Application of TTT and CCT-diagrams.

Course assessment

There must be an early dialogue between the course coordinator, the student representative and the students. The purpose is feedback from the students for changes and adjustments in the course for the current semester.In addition, a digital course evaluation must be carried out at least every three years. Its purpose is to gather the students experiences with the course.
