MSE-422 / 4 crédits

Enseignant: Leinenbach Christian

Langue: Anglais


Summary

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
