Synopsis:

Abstract:

The course is based on previously acquired general physical and physical metallurgical knowledge and applies this knowledge to real systems such as Fe-C and Fe-X-C, multicomponent Fe and Ni -based alloys, etc., which are the basis of steels and special structural materials. Since the Physical Metallurgy 2 builds on the previous, more theoretically oriented courses of Metal Physics and Physical Metallurgy 1, added emphasis is placed on applications of real systems in engineering.

Requirements:
Syllabus of lectures:

Outline:

1. Recapitulation of basic principles. Overview of experimental methods.

2. Kinetics of phase transformation.

3. Equilibrium diagram Fe-C - metastable and stable systems, phase transformation in steels.

4. Austenite decomposition - TTT diagrams.

5. Diffusional transformation (nucleation and growth), pearlite and bainite transformations.

6. Diffusionless transformation (shear, twinning). Martensitic transformation

7. Formation of carbides: epsilon-carbide, cementite, complex metastable and stable carbides.

8. Recovery and recrystallization.

9. Physical principles of the heat treatment. Quenching, hardening, annealing, tempering.

10. Special corrosion-, creep- and heat-resistant steels.

11. Special Ni and Ti based alloys.

12. Notes to present research trends.

Keywords:

Equilibrium phase diagram FE-C, phase transformations in steels, heat treatment of steels, structural and special steels and alloys
