This course covers the metallurgy, processing and properties of modern high-performance metals and alloys (e.g. advanced steels, Ni-base, Ti-base, High Entropy Alloys etc.). In addition, the principles of computational alloy design as well as approaches for a sustainable metallurgy will be addressed
Introduction to the assembly of materials by homogeneous or heterogeneous joints (welding, bonding, mechanical assembly). Mechanical and environmental resistance of joints.
Provide understanding of the optical properties of materials, principles of laser operation and properties of generated light. Comprehension of basics of interaction between laser light and materials will allow analysis of the physics and chemsitry of laser processes.
This course is designed to cover a number of materials science aspects related to the field of additive manufacturing of metals and alloys, and to provide an in-depth review of corresponding fundamentals.
