Class Objectives
/Class Outline
Many mechanical materials vary greatly in microstructure and mechanical properties due to heat processes such as casting, sintering and joining.
Among them, the formation of defects and changes in microstructure are caused by phenomena such as solidification, phase transformation, crystal grain growth, solid solution, deposition, segregation in a rapid heating and cooling process.
Understand how to predict such microstructure changes.
