Curricular information is subject to change
On successful completion of this course the student will be able to:
Create the link between the phases present in an alloy and the variation with temperature and composition of the governing thermodynamic variables.
Predict the direction in which a chemical reaction, or phase change, will proceed during materials processing.
Devise a phase diagram from knowledge of fundamental thermodynamic data on materials.
Calculate the amount and composition of each phase expected at a particular temperature.
Read and interrogate ternary phase diagrams. Find the rate at which phase transformations occur.
Make the link between thermodynamics, kinetics, and microstructure.
