Rationale
In industry, various products of metals and alloys are provided with different degrees of heat treatment to develop properties like- hardness, toughness, tempering, etc the diploma engineers are expected to supervise these operations for quality outputs. Hence, this course deals with the understanding of principles and procedures of different types of heat treatment for engineering metals and alloys. This course will help the student to understand the underlying physical metallurgy principles and application of different types of heat treatment for obtaining the desired properties in the alloys.
Course Outcome
The theory should be taught and practical should be carried out in such a manner that students are able to acquire required learning out comes in cognitive, psychomotor and affective domain to demonstrate following course outcomes.
i. Describe construction and working of different type of pyrometer
ii. Describe different types of Annealing and its applications.
iii. Explain process of Tempering & Hardening.
iv. Describe the process for surface hardening
v. Describe Precipitation Hardening of Al-Cu alloys.
