MSE-422 / 4 crédits

Enseignant: Weber Ludger

Langue: Anglais


Summary

This course covers advanced metals and alloys both in terms of specific alloy classes (e.g. Ni-base, Ti-base, precious metals, High Entropy alloys, Metallic glasses) as well as general concepts (e.g. electrical and thermal properties, general characteristics of metallic melts and solids).

Content

Keywords

  • Thermophysical characteristics of liquid metals
  • Interactions between liquid metals and the environment 
  • Thermodynamic descriptions of the liquid metal phase
  • Frozen-in liquid metals—metallic glasses
  • Thermodynamics of multicomponent systems
  • Ni-base alloys
  • Ti-base alloys
  • Precious metals
  • Intermetallics
  • High entropy alloys
  • Electronic properties of metals

Learning Prerequisites

Required courses

Physics I-IV, Metals and Alloys, Phase transformation, Thermodynamics of mixtures, 

Recommended courses

Solid state physics

Important concepts to start the course

Understanding phase diagrams

Quantum mechanics

"Free" electrons in a metal

Phase transformations 

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course, the student must be able to:

  • Assess / Evaluate the stability of various phases against a metallic melt
  • Estimate the evolution of the electrical and thermal conductivity of an alloy with temperature
  • Sketch the general physical and mechanical properties of the dominant metals and alloys
  • Propose adequate metals and alloys for a given set of requirements
  • Judge the veracity of tabulated values in Handbooks

Transversal skills

  • Assess one's own level of skill acquisition, and plan their on-going learning goals.
  • Demonstrate the capacity for critical thinking

Teaching methods

Ex-Cathedra, exercises

Expected student activities

Pondering problems to find what they need to know next and what they do not know yet (learning by doing).
