Fundamentals of Metallurgy

Fundamentals of physical metallurgy: crystallography, reinforcing mechanisms for metals, phase diagrams (Fe-C diagram). Fundamentals of solidification and diffusion: thermodynamics and kinetics. The shrinkage and segregations. Practical examples of solidification: solidification in ingot. Massive and surface heat treatments: solid state transformations. Thermodynamics and kinetics of solid reactions. Steel heat treatments: annealing, quenching, tempering and aging. Surface treatments: surface hardening, carburizing, nitriding, boriding and anti-wear coatings. Designation of steel, Characterization and testing of metals. Introduction to non-ferrous metals and alloys.
