3. submission and presentation of an individual semester work on a chosen topic in the field of aviation and space materials according to the specified requirements.

Syllabus of lectures:

1. Specifics and requirements for aviation materials – basic material properties, methods of processing materials

2. Fatigue – effect of cyclic loading on material properties, fatigue damage characteristics

3. Creep – effect of elevated temperatures on material properties, characteristic of creep damage

4. Degradation processes – environmental effects (moisture, UV radiation, corrosion, wear)

5. Methods of protection of aircraft materials

6. Qualitative fractography – basic description of fractographic methods, morphology of fracture surfaces

7. Aluminum and its alloys – characteristics, properties and classification, usage in aviation
