Course Aim
After completion of the course the student will have:
- a good view over the theory for plastic deformation/forming
- knowledge about the relationship between structure and materials properties
- knowledge about the use of the different metallic materials
- the ability to understand handbooks and standards

Contents
Repetition: Basic materials science; The periodical system; The formability of precious metals and their alloys; Crystallography. Simple dislocation theory. Melting, casting, rolling, forging, wire drawing;
Joining: Welding and soldering. Different solder alloys; Mechanical manufacturing; Surface modifications. Grinding and polishing. Electrochemistry; Electrolysis, electroplating. Laser technology; Cutting, drilling, welding and engraving of precious metals by laser.

Realization
The education will be INTERNET-based lectures (distance education), laborations, case studies and practical exercises. Participation in the laboratory work and case studies is compulsory.
The laboratory work will explain the relationship between structure and properties of precious metals as a function of the amount of alloying elements.

Examination
Several small, written examinations after every part. For ”pass” the completion of laboratory work and case studies is required.

Remarks
Those, who have not participated at the first two lectures, will loose their places.
