Non-metallic Materials (E321073)
|Departments:||ústav materiálového inženýrství (12132)|
|Valid until:|| ??||Range:||2P+2C|
The lectures cover the entire range of non-metallic engineering materials, a majority of them are devoted to polymer materials which are most frequently used in mechanical engineering and the volume of their consumption highly exceeds that of the rest of non-metallic materials. Emphasis is laid on explanation and realization of basic terms in the field of non-metallic materials. The lectures also deal with standardization, environmental and economical aspects which follow from the different properties of non-metallic and metallic materials.
