INFO Master's Programme Materials Sciences and Nanosciences according to the curriculum 2008 (120 ECTS-Credits, 4 semesters)
Elective modules in ¿Advanced Specialisation¿ in the subdisciplines of Inorganic Chemis-try, Physical Chemistry, Mineralogy, Pharmaceutical Technology, Physics, Ion Physics, Textile Chemistry and Textile Physics, Civil Engineering and Theoretical Materials Scienc-es: From elective modules 1 ¿ 19 modules covering 20 ECTS-Credits must be selected and passed:
Elective Modules in Advanced Specialisation (20 ECTS-Credits)
Elective Module 6: Tribology/ Materials and Surface Science Technology (5 ECTS-Credits, 4 h)
Prerequisites for registration: none
Learning Outcome: Students learn - based on selected methods of micromechanics - about fundamental concepts of tribology. They understand the origin of physical properties in dependence of material morphology and the properties of the individual material phases as well as the elemental processes of friction on a nanoscopic and molecular scale. They are able to describe the material behaviour based on microstructure and to determine the sensitivity of the behaviour in case of change of structure and morphology on the one hand and quantitative treatment of friction loss and its targeted regulation by different types of lubrication on the other hand.
