Institute for Applied Materials – Materials Science and Engineering

High Temperature Materials

  • Phenomenology of High Temperature Deformation
  • Deformation Mechanisms
  • High Temperature Structural Materials

learning objectives:

Students are able to

  • Define properly the term "high temperature" with respect to materials
  • Describe the shape of the creep curve based on underlying deformation mechanisms
  • Rationalize the influence of relevant parameters such as temperature, stress, microstructure on the high temperature deformation behavior
  • Develop strategies for improving creep resistance of alloys via modifying their composition
  • Select properly industrially relevant high temperature structural materials for various applications
