Module content
Lectures:

The course is devoted to special applications of new and advanced materials. The course will be focused on selected physical and mechanical properties of different materials such as bulk metallic materials, nanomaterials, new carbon materials, piezoelectric and nanopiezoelectric materials as well as new magnetic materials.
The concept of damping phenomena and damping mechanisms operating in different materials are introduced based on the fluctuation-disspation theory and phenomenological and microscopic desciption of selected phase transformations. The analysis and applications of high- and low-damping materials are carefully introduced and discussed. The self-consistent approach to compare physical properties of different materials is based on the concept of complex modulus and compliance. Conventional and new advanced computing techniques to estimate complex modulii are introduced and discussed in the framework of a common platform to analyze the physical properties of materials. The conventional micro- and macrostructral analysis of different materials is supplemented and complemented by a wide-scale materials characterization performed in the atto-, femto-, pico- and nano-scale.
The 3-D and 2-D new carbon materials, nanopiezoelectic materials, and strong magnetic materials are briefly introduced and analyzed with special emphasis on new promising applications in materials science and engineering.

Laboratory classes:

1. Conventional and advanced computing techniques to estimate complex modulus of classical metallic materials and high-, low-, and extreme-low damping materials.
2. Dynamic characterization and applications of high- and low-damping materials.
3. Direct measurements and estimation of the absolute values of elastic modulus for bulk metallic (e.g. 3-rd generation ultra-high strength steels) and non-metallic materials.
4. Characterization and applications of nanopiezoelectric materials in materials science and engineering.
5. Production techniques, characterization and mechanical properties of bulk nanocrystalline metals and alloys.
6. New magnetic materials. Properties and applications of strong magnetic materials.
