Material Testing and Characterisation, 6 hp
Course ContentsThe course covers different material properties and material behavior. The link between structure and material properties is studied. Equipment for typical material testing techniques are studied and used in practice. The measurements are analyzed and presented.
The course contains the following topics:
- Testing methodology, material testing standards and material standards
- Mechanical tests of static and dynamic properties
- Analytical methods for thermo-physical properties
- Determination of chemical composition and thermodynamic calculations of microstructure
- Metallographic sample preparation, microscopy and image analysis
- Different techniques for nondestructive testing
- Theory behind the relationship between structure and material properties.
PrerequisitesThe applicant must hold the minimum of a bachelor's degree (ie. the equivalent of 180 ECTS credits at an accredited university) with at least 90 credits in Mechanical Engineering or equivalent. Proof of English proficiency is required.
