Course Description

Structural metallic materials, in particular steels, achieve their various mechanical properties based on microstructural control in micro and nano scales. This lecture treats mainly steels, and explains the mechanism of microstructure formation by solid state reactions (phase transformation / precipitation / recrystallization), and relationship between microstructure and mechanical properties. Moreover, the lecture introduces the new metallurgy for developing microstructural control methodology.
