Objectives :
The objective of this course is to understand the genesis of the microstructure arising from phase transformations by linking the transformation mechanism and kinetics to the resulting morphological parameters.
In view of the desired properties, the multiscale aspect of the structure of materials is underlined together with the relevant characteristic dimension and the chemical local composition.
Pre-requirements :
Thermochemistry , phase diagram, diffusion, crystallographic structure and crystal defects.
Educational content of the course
Phase transformation and multiscale microstructure. Microstructure formation : equilibrium diagram, overall driving force for transformation, nucleation driving force. Nucleation kinetics, diffusion controlled growth kinetics.
Application to cristallization and precipitation (pure substance, binary and ternary alloys),
Application to eutectic and eutectoid transformation.
Overall transformation kinetics for isothermal and nonisothermal transformation. Diffusionless transformation, Martensitic transformation.
