Synopsis:

This course explains the structure and basic properties of important non-metallic materials, such as ceramics, glass, polymers and composites. These materials can be used as single material for construction, they can form protective coatings or they may be used as components for the functionally graded materials.

Requirements:
Syllabus of lectures:

1. Ceramic materials: introduction, basic properties, thermal properties, applications

2. Ceramic materials: processing, chemical properties, mechanical properties,

transformation toughening

3. Ceramic materials: electric, magnetic and optical properties

4. Glass: composition, properties, processing

5. Structure of polymers: configuration, conformation, molecular mass

6. Properties of polymers: temperature of the glass transition

7. Properties of polymers: mechanical behaviour, elasticity of rubber

8. Carbon fibers, fullerenes, nanoparticles

9. Polymer matrix composites, carbon-carbon composites

10. Protective coatings / general survey, classification, PVD, CVD

11. Ceramic and metallic coatings produced by thermal spraying / characterization

12. Ceramic and metallic coatings produced by thermal spraying / properties and

applications.

13. Self-supporting sprayed ceramics and functionally graded materials.
