Heat treatment and welding of metals
This course introduces heat treating and welding processes and their applicability.
After the course, the student is able to select the most suitable heat treatment process and to give the main characteristics of the heat treating parameters for achieving the required properties such as yield/tensile strength, ductility, toughness, surface hardness and/or fatigue strength. They are also able to explain the metallurgical phenomena occurring in a sample during heat treatment.
In the area of welding technology, the student is able to explain the most essential principles and applications of the conventional welding and cutting processes. They are able to estimate weldability of different materials and to analyse the factors affecting weldability. They can also explain the most essential matters regarding weld joint properties, weld defects and their inspection, and a healthy working environment.
In addition, the student is generally able to take into account the effects of productivity and costs on the competitiveness.
