Experimental Lab Course, Part A

Experimental Lab Course, Part A
type: Praktikum (P)
semester: WS 19/20
time:

The lab course is taking place in parallel to the lectures in materials physics and metals and therefore bridging winter and summer course. Registration will be performed using ILIAS. There will be a short introduction during the lecture on materials physics.

lecturer: Prof. Dr.-Ing. Martin Heilmaier
Dr.-Ing. Alexander Kauffmann
lv-no.: 2174578
Notes

Performing and evaluating of two laboratory experiments in each of the following topics:

Mechanical testing of materials
Nonmetallic materials
Microstructure and properties
Cyclic loading / fatigue
Influence of manufacturing technique on materials

learning objectives:

The students are able to describe the relationship between atomic structure, microscopical observations, and properties of solid materials.

The students can name standard materials characterization methods and can describe the execution of the tests as well as the evaluation of the results. The students are able to asses materials on base of the data obtained by these methods.

The students are capable to select appropriate experiments to clarify probelms regarding the materials behaviour. They know the experimental procedures and can derive material properties from data gained in experiments. They can interpret these properties regarding microstructure-propety-relations.

Aim

The students are able to describe the relationship between atomic structure, microscopical observations, and properties of solid materials.

The students can name standard materials characterization methods and can describe the execution of the tests as well as the evaluation of the results. The students are able to asses materials on base of the data obtained by these methods.

The students are capable to select appropriate experiments to clarify probelms regarding the materials behaviour. They know the experimental procedures and can derive material properties from data gained in experiments. They can interpret these properties regarding microstructure-propety-relations.

Exam description

Oral colloquium at the beginning of each topic; certificate of successful attendance.
