Course Objective In the course of ceramic lectures in the department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering, very short subject about refractory materials is learned to students. Refracories are especially very important and indispensable parts of the metallurgical furnaces. The course of refractories and its applications is going to helpful for MsC and PhD students
Course Content Introduction and definitions, needing to the refractories, acidic and basic refractories, refractory raw materials, production techniques of refractories, Alumina refractories, Silica refractories, Castible, monolithic refractories, isolation refractories, application areas in the metallurgy and other industries, fibers, coatings and fused refarctories, properties of the refractories and tests applied.
# Course Learning Outcomes Teaching Methods Assessment Methods
1 To conceive to refractories and theirs classifications
2 To conceive to services used of the refractories
3 To conceive to specific properties of the refractories depending on service conditions
4 To conceive to refractory selection and design parameters
5 To conceive to tests applied on refractories and to compare to test results
6 To conceive to problems took place in the service conditons (corrosion, errosion etc)
