Lectures: MSc. Jaroslav Valach Ph.D.
Practicals: MSc. Marcel Adorna


Main topics

  • Mechanical properties of materials
  • Experimental testing of mechanical properties of materials
  • The main classes of materials
  • Defectoscopy
  • Degradation of materials

Main goals of the course

Student will obtain a general overview of technically important materials (metals, polymers and composites). The basic level materials science course builds a consistent explanation of materials from the level of atomic level to practical procedures during technological processes and material production. He/she will also understand decisive mechanical properties of materials for engineering and technology on the basis of hands-on practicing of the most important mechanical tests like tensile test or hardness test.
