Metallurgy of Non-Ferrous Alloys
FSI-9MNKAcad. year: 2020/2021
The course deeped knowledges in the sphere metallurgy of aluminium and magnesium alloys. An accent is given on theoretical problems of crystallization and on application of metallurgical measures for achievement of optimal properties of castings. An overview of particular production processes and ranges of their application is given. An overwiew of new, non-traditional casting methods and alloys is mentioned too.
