Course Description:
The module introduces the concepts of alloying and the reasons for using certain elements in metallic alloys. The module deals with the concept of free energy of formation, nucleation and growth, solid state phase transformations and ageing reactions. The concepts are then applied to industrially significant metallic systems such as Copper, Aluminium, and Nickel-based alloys to rationalise commercial compositions and processes for specific ranges of properties / application areas. The development of microstructure, its characterisation by microscopy and its relationships with phase diagrams and TTT and CCT diagrams will be covered.
