Pedagogic informations

Training objectives
The aim of this course is to give an expertise in the field of metallic materials in order to be able to make the choice of a suitable material and its heat treatment.

Learning objectives
At the end of the course the student should be able to make the appropriate choice of a metallic material and its heat treatment. Furthermore, it must be able to establish a link between the microstructural evolution induced by thermomechanical treatments and the overall mechanical behavior of the alloy.

Examples of application to the fields of transport and energy are considered. The course covers the ferrous materials (steel, cast iron) and the influence of heat and surface treatments. The introduction to aluminum alloys, titanium and magnesium broadens the concepts herein to other families of materials used in mechanical engineering.
