The subject gives a basic survey of mechanisms of materials degradation. Degradation due to mechanical forces (deformation, fracture, fatigue, wear) is mainly described. The other part is devoted to corrosion, i.e. degradation due to chemical reactions, degradation at high-temperatures and degradation due to radiation.
Aim of the course -

Students will be able to:

Analyze the reasons of the materials damage in practice.

Propose the solutions to remedy the consequences of the damage.

Propose the solutions leading to minimization of the degradation processes in practice.
