EI19SP Bachelor Degree Programme in Mechanical Engineering

Course Description

Code4 EIA8010
NameMaterial Technology 1
Credits5 cr
Credits in Foreign Language5 cr
ObjectivesThe aim of this course is that students get familiar with the most used materials in mechanical engineering, especially steels. Other materials discussed are cast iron and nonferrous metals. With different structural materials the scope is to understand mechanical properties of metals, manufacturing routes and service conditions subject to composition and internal structures of metals. These can be affected by heat treatment and degree of deformation. The fundamentals of material selection and fracture mechanics are also explored.

Within this study module also corrosion of materials, which is closely related to reduction-oxidation reactions as well as electrochemistry, is covered. During this study module students will take part in practical training in the laboratory of material technology.
ContentMaterial groups and manufacturing of metals
Internal structures of metals and its influence on properties of materials
Mechanical properties, definition within different ways
Effect of heat treatment and environmental factors
Different steel grades with their mechanical and corrosion properties and their weldability
Cast irons and nonferrous metals
Fundamentals of materials selection and fracture mechanics
Corrosion of materials
Reduction-oxidation reactions
MethodsThe course includes theory lectures and advanced exercises that deepen the theoretical knowledge. The course also includes laboratory assignments and possibly excursion.

The compeletion of the course is assessed by a partial and/or full exam. The passing limit is 40 %. The grading scale is the following: Excellent (5), Very good (4), Good (3), Satisfactory (2), Sufficient (1), Failed (0)
Grading Scale0 - 5
