Possible Study achievement

  • Verification of study performance: proof of successful participation in the practical course / lab
  • Examination number (Study achievement): 10171 ("Laboratory "Material Testing"")
  • Details of the examination (type, duration, criteria) will be announced at the beginning of the course.
    Depending on the examination regulations, the course work can/must be submitted as graded examination work. In this case the repetition rules of the examination regulations for practical laboratory work apply.


  • Investigating the influence of different heat treatments on material properties
  • Determination of the quasi-static deformation behavior
  • Hardness testing
  • Characterization of microstructure by light optical and scanning electron microscopy
  • Software-supported quantitative microstructure analysis
  • Fracture surface analysis
  • Cyclic deformation behavior and hysteresis measurements

Competencies / intended learning achievements

The students are able to
  • explain the influence of different heat treatments on the resulting material properties
  • recognize the heat treatment state of a metallic material by characterizing the microstructure with light optical and scanning electron microscopy and to this to the deformation behavior
  • assign fracture surfaces to the respective heat treatment condition
  • determine quantitatively the different parts of microstructure
  • carry out and evaluate macro hardness measurements
  • characterize the cyclic deformation behavior by means of hysteresis measurements
  • name the characteristic values of the stress-strain hysteresis
  • structure and present the research results in an evaluative manner
