Module overview

This module considers metallic alloys with special reference to applications in transport applications. The main materials considered are aluminium, titanium and nickel based alloys, and steel. Also metal based composites, and high temperature materials such as intermetallics and ceramics are considered. Examples of applications are drawn from aerospace, automotive and marine industries. The microstructural development of the materials is considered in detail, and the use of "microstructural engineering" in materials design and selection explored.
