Description
Learning outcomes 

Student will gain some knowledge of materials science, particularly regarding porous, anisotropic, hygroscopic and time-dependent materials, as well as composites and laminates made of them.

 
Content 

Essentials: Properties and material properties. Thermal and moisture expansion. Sorption and hysteresis. Diffusion, conductance, flow. Porosity effects. Complementary knowledge: Thermal transitions. Composites. Strength. Special knowledge: Time-dependent material behavior.

 
Modes of study 

Lectures (24 h), exercises (50 h), literature (49 h), examination.

 
Teaching methods 

Update 6.11.2020:

The course will be organized as a contact or hybrid teaching in the spring semester 2021. The lectures are streamed, so you can also listen to the lectures online.
