Applied Metallurgy

The course aims at deepening the study of the metallic materials and their treatments with special reference to the steels and special alloys, stainless steels and tool steels, aluminium alloys and copper alloys, also taking into account their typical applications in mechanical engineering fields. A further and fundamental objective of the course is the introduction of the main damage phenomena of the metallic materials (fatigue, brittleness, corrosion, wear and creep), relating such aspects to metallurgy and making, transformation and joint processing of metallic materials. Synthesis of the subjects: Carbon steels and low alloy steels, stainless steels and tool steels; bearing steels and steels for wire and rope applications; aluminum alloys for plastic deformation and for heat treatment; copper and copper alloys; degradation and service failure of structural materials. Steelmaking and transformation processes and joint processes (Course held in English).
