Module content
Lectures:
Advanced Materials Engineering

Subjects:
I. Processing of ceramics
1. Selected problems of powder processing and low temperature consolidation.
2. Theory and practice of densification of engineering ceramic materials: convetional sintering, modified densification processes: HP, HIP, FAST, methods that utilize chemical reaction, melt processing, crystallization and infiltration
3. Final machining.
4. Quality assurance.
II. Design in ceramics
1. Design considerations: requirements, limitations and approaches .
2. Failure analysis by using fractography.
3. Toughening of ceramics: mechanisms and examples of toughened ceramics

Seminar classes:
Advanced Materials Engineering

Seminar classes are devoted to discussing in detail the subjects presented during the lectures in order to get engineerig skills of selection of optimum technology for production of a ceramic material with a givin set of application properties. Presentations, prepared by students on selected detail subjects, complement the discusion.

Additional information
Method of calculating the final grade:

OK = 0,5 x OE + 0,4 x OS + 0,1 x OF
gdzie:
OK – final grade,
OE – egzam grade,
OS – seminar grade,
OF – attendane , które są obowiązkowe.

Prerequisites and additional requirements:

According to the AGH-UST studies regulation, a basic term of getting a grade is the last day of a semester. A term of amendment of the grade can’t be later then a term of the last exam in the amendment session or the last day of the semester for subjects with and with no examination, respectively. A supervisor of the course establishes a way and time of the amendment.
