Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to comprehend the manufacturing routes for various metals and alloys and to understand why specific processing routes are chosen. Furthermore, they know the most important proceses for shaping and treating of metallic materials.

Subject of course

Part 1: Most important metallic materials; property profiles; applications; Materials selection; requirements, economical aspects; specific properties of metallic materials; most important shaping and heat treatment techniques Part 2: Manufacturing of the most important metals such as Fe (steel, cast iron), Al, Cu, Tio, W; thermodynamics of manufacturing Variation of properties by heat treatment (bulk, surface) and thermomechanical treatment Shaping processes: by deformation, by machining (with defined / non-defined edge geometry), joining techniques Attention: held in German language!

Teaching methods
