OVERVIEW

Special steels, other than carbon steels, and special applications need a deep knowledge in metallurgy and a wide vision on the impact of alloying elements effect and of thermal treatments suitable to match practical needs. TO face the constant evolution of the demand and to open new fields of application a suitable education together with an open mind creativity based are needed. 

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The Metallurgy 2 classes main goals are to reinforce and to consolidate the base knowledge on steels, to give an overview on some non ferrous alloys (copper and aluminum base). Castability of copper alloys, welding techniques and the usage of metals in special applications (e.g. stacking of fuel cells) are treated topics as well as the application investigation applied to archaeological and historical cultural heritage materials. 

LEARNING OUTCOMES (FURTHER INFO)

Alloying elements effect on steel characteristics 

special steels

 

stainless steel

special applications and metal - environment interactions

Teaching methods

Most of the classes are held in the classroom with the support of practical examples and case studies

Laboratory sessions are applied for those students having this planned in their course.

The slides of the treated topics are distributed at the end of the lessons.

SYLLABUS/CONTENT
