Objective | For the mechanical design of systems, knowledge about basic concepts of continuum mechanics are indispensable. These include mechanical stress, deformations, etc. which are demonstrated on simple examples resulting in an understanding which is both mathematically correct and intuitive. In this course students learn the basic concepts of the mechanics of deformable media that they will later apply in other courses such as Dimensioning which are closer to real engineering applications. | |||||

Objective | Knowledge about the properties and application area of metals. Understanding the fundamentals of high polymers and ceramics for engineers that can be confronted with material decisions in construction and production. | |||||

Content | The lecture contains two parts: For metallic materials fatigue and heat treatment will be discussed. Physical properties such as thermal, electric and magnetic properties will be examined. Important iron- and non-iron- alloys will be introduced and their cases of applications will be discussed. In the second part of the lecture the structure and the properties of the high polymers and ceramics will be discussed. Important subareas are the crystalline and non-crystalline materials and the porous solid bodies, the thermal- mechanical engineering material behaviour, as well as the probabilistic fracture mechanics. Beside the mechanic- the physical-properties will be also discussed. Engineering material related fundamentals of the productions engineering will be discussed. | |||||
