Rationale
This elementary course deals with the relationship between structure and properties of metals and alloys. It forms a vital link in the processes of making, shaping and heat treating of metals. It thus interfaces with the other areas of metallurgy such as process metallurgy, mechanical metallurgy and engineering metallurgy. Therefore, an engineering diploma student must be conversant with the crystalline structures of metals, equilibrium diagrams, deformation of metals and effect of heat on cold –worked metals and metallography from the point of view of producing structures of metals that gives the best properties. The study of these basic concepts of physical metallurgy will help the students in understanding engineering courses where the emphasis is laid on the application of these metals and alloys.
