Course content
Comparing metals, ceramics and polymers from different points of view; characterization of composite materials, smart materials and principles of nanomaterials. Strong and weak points of different classes of materials. Raw materials used for conventional and advanced ceramics, characterization methods of chemical, mineralogical and mechanical properties.Processing of non-metallic raw materials. Basic information on ceramics and refractories - basic types, productiom technologies (shaping , drying, firing). Process of sintering, high-temperature reactions. Advanced (technical) oxide and non-oxide ceramics - types, technology of processing, usage. Glass, glassceramics. Ceramic fibers. High temperature superconductors based on ceramics. Introduction to polymers, raw materials for their production. Polymerization and technologies used. Types of polymers, examples, properties, usage. Processing of polymers. Polymer fibers. Biopolymers Composite materials - theory, systematics, examples. Composites for technical praxis. Surface processing of materials, finishing. Recycling non-metallic materials. Choise of materials using the database systems. Working with the material database GRANTA EduPack, principles, philosophy. Aplications of non-metallics in machinery sector. Outlook, visions of development.
